Safe Passage Book Club

Monday April 25 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 PM on Monday, repeating until April 26, 2022

Join us every Monday in April for a community-wide book club. In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, we’ll be reading Know My Name by Chanel Miller.

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.

Books will be available in Adult Services prior to the first session.

This book club is a partnership between Safe Passage, DeKalb Public Library, and Sycamore Public Library.

This is a free program and no registration is required.

For more information, contact Britta at brittak@dkpl.org or (815) 756-9568 ext. 2100.
