Special Speaker Event: Carmen Ortiz

The State Library Author Talks Series is honored to host a special speaker event with former U.S. District Attorney, Carmen Ortiz. From 2009-2017, Ortiz served as the U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts, leading an office of over 200 attorneys throughout Boston, Worcester, and Springfield. During her extensive career as a trial lawyer and investigator, Ortiz has directed many civil and criminal cases, including the high-profile investigations against Whitey Bulger and the Boston Marathon bomber. 

To commemorate the events of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Ortiz will speak on her experience leading the prosecution against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Carmen Ortiz is currently a Partner at Anderson & Kreiger. Read more about her career and achievements here.

We hope you can join us for this special event as we honor the 10th anniversary of the bombings. The event is free and open to all. Assisted listening devices will be made available upon request. Can’t make it in person? View the livestream on our YouTube channel.
