P&P Live!: Chanel Miller – Know My Name: A Memoir - in conversation with Rebecca Solnit

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, August 18, 2020 - 8:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

She was known to the world as Emily Doe when she stunned millions with a letter. Brock Turner had been sentenced to just six months in county jail after he was found sexually assaulting her on Stanford's campus. Her victim impact statement was posted on BuzzFeed, where it instantly went viral--viewed by eleven million people within four days, it was translated globally and read on the floor of Congress; it inspired changes in California law and the recall of the judge in the case. Thousands wrote to say that she had given them the courage to share their own experiences of assault for the first time. Now she reclaims her identity to tell her story of trauma, transcendence, and the power of words.

Know My Name will forever transform the way we think about sexual assault, challenging our beliefs about what is acceptable and speaking truth to the tumultuous reality of healing. It also introduces readers to an extraordinary writer, one whose words have already changed our world. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic.

Miller will be in conversation with Rebecca Solnit, the author of more than twenty books, including the bestselling memoir, Recollection of My Nonexistence, A Field Guide to Getting Lost, andThe Faraway Nearby. She is also the author of Men Explain Things to Me and many essays on feminism, activism and social change, and hope.

*All books purchased for this event will come with a specially designed signed bookplate.
