“The Edge of Innocence,” Miraldi’s first book that is classified somewhere between narrative non-fiction and creative non-fiction, is based on the 1964 trial of Casper Bennett in Lorain County, Ohio, in which Miraldi’s father served as the defense attorney. It was named the 2018 Book of the Year by the International Rubery Book Awards, the longest established book awards based in the United Kingdom for independent and self-published writers and small independent presses all over the world.

After receiving his bachelor of arts degree from Wooster, Miraldi went on to earn his law degree from The Ohio State University and returned home to Lorain County to practice law with his father and brother. He is currently with the firm Miraldi & Barrett, Co.

Miraldi’s discussion is sponsored by Wooster’s pre-law advising program and alumni office.
