Attend Jane Velez Mitchell presentation

Jane Velez-Mitchell will speak about her vegan lifestyle and her passion for helping animals.  She hosts "Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell," a topical event-driven show with a wide range of viewpoints. A veteran television news journalist, Velez-Mitchell reported for the nationally syndicated Warner Brothers/Telepictures show "Celebrity Justice" and regularly served as guest host for "Nancy Grace," another HLN program.

As a commentator on high-profile cases, Velez-Mitchell has appeared on CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and other national cable television programs. During the Michael Jackson molestation trial, she appeared daily on "Nancy Grace" and was featured on CNN's "Larry King Live" on several occasions, including the evening of the verdict.

Velez-Mitchell chronicles her lifelong battle with alcoholism, as well as her coming out as a lesbian and her discovery of a healthier, happier and more meaningful existence, in "iWant: My Journey From Addiction and Overconsumption to a Simpler Honest Life," which was released in October 2009, and became a New York Times bestseller.  Her most recent book, “Addict Nation” was released in February 2011.

Her first nonfiction book, "Secrets Can Be Murder: What America's Most Sensational Crimes Tell Us About Ourselves," was published by Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster. The paperback version appeared in bookstores in June 2008.

Velez-Mitchell previously spent more than a decade anchoring and reporting for KCAL-TV in Los Angeles. She also served as a reporter/anchor for eight years at WCBS-TV in New York City.

In 2010, her HLN show garnered a Genesis Awards from the Humane Society of the United States, her third having won two others on “Celebrity Justice.”  Velez-Mitchell is the recipient of a Los Angeles Emmy Award and a New York Emmy Award. The KCAL-TV newscasts she co-anchored won three Southern California Golden Mike Awards and an Emmy. She also wrote, directed and produced "Dancing Through Life," an award-winning documentary.
