Connections: Deanne Quinn Miller and Gary Craig on their new book, "The Prison Guard's Daughter"

On the 50th anniversary of the Attica prison riot, we welcome Deanne Quinn Miller. She was five years old when her father, a prison guard, was killed at Attica. She spent decades pursuing both the full story of her father's death and justice for everyone involved -- including the inmates of Attica.

Her new book is called "The Prison Guard's Daughter," and it's co-authored by longtime Democrat & Chronicle reporter Gary Craig. Both co-authors join us:

  • Deanne Quinn Miller, co-author of "The Prison Guard's Daughter"
  • Gary Craig, co-author of "The Prison Guard's Daughter," and reporter at the Democrat & Chronicle
