Publisher Comments:

"A courageous, eloquent, and devoted mother...gives us all a greater understanding of Matthew and the larger meaning of his life."

-Senator Edward M. Kennedy

Today, Matthew Shepard is synonymous with gay rights, but until 1998, he was just Judy Shepard's son. In The Meaning of Matthew, Judy Shepard confides how she handled her crippling loss in the public eye, the vigils and protests held by strangers in her son's name, and ultimately how she and her husband gained the courage to help prosecutors convict her son's murderers.

Heart-wrenchingly honest, The Meaning of Matthew is an unforgettable and inspiring story, chronicling one ordinary woman's struggle to cope with the unthinkable.

Synopsis:

The mother of Matthew Shepard, the young man murdered in 1998 simply for being gay, shares her story about her son's death and the choice she made to become an international gay rights activist.

About the Author

Judy Shepard is co-founder of The Matthew Shepard Foundation, created with her husband Dennis to honor their son's legacy and promote social justice, diversity awareness and education, and equality. She lives in Casper, Wyoming.
