☯ Full Synopsis : "'I can't wait to read it' Dolly Alderton 'Extraordinary woman turning pain into power. Chanel Miller, it's a privilege to know your name, and to celebrate it' Thandie Newton 'You are a brave soul. You are more than the identity given to you by the media and those in power' Monica Lewinsky 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. It was the perfect case, in many ways - there were eyewitnesses, Turner ran away, physical evidence was immediately secured. But her struggles with isolation and shame during the aftermath and the trial reveal the oppression victims face in even the best-case scenarios. Her story illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicts a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shines with the courage required to move through suffering and live a full and beautiful life. 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 humour, this memoir will stand as a modern classic."Article| Chanel Miller| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "A woman with no name. A wild, abandoned island. A family desperate for answers. A debut thriller like no other. On a small Greek island, a woman comes ashore with no memory of who she is, where she's from, or how she came to be shipwrecked there. Worse, she has no way of leaving. As she's nursed back to health by the island's only inhabitants, four friends on an annual retreat, she detects tensions between the group that suggest not all is quite as it seems.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Baldwin's early essays have been described as 'an unequalled meditation on what it means to be black in America' . This rich and stimulating collection contains 'Fifth Avenue, Uptown: a Letter from Harlem', polemical pieces on the tragedies inflicted by racial segregation and a poignant account of his first journey to 'the Old Country' , the southern states. Yet equally compelling are his 'Notes for a Hypothetical Novel' and personal reflections on being American, on oother major artists - Ingmar Bergman and Andre Gide, Norman Mailer and Richard Wright - and on the first great conferance of Negro - American writers and artists in Paris. In his introduction Baldwin descrides the writer as requiring 'every ounce of stamina he can summon to attempt to look on himself and the world as they are' ; his uncanny ability to do just that is proclaimed on every page of this famous book."Article| James Baldwin| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : You Will Know My Name
☯ Full Synopsis : "Looking at Carolynn Brooks, people always saw someone who had her act together: a lovely wife, a caring mother, and an ambitious talent rising in the ranks of corporate America. As it turned out, she would one day be vice president of a Fortune 500 company, even when that career path was almost unheard of for a black woman without a degree. What people didn't see was Carolynn scrambling to take off her glasses before her husband hit her. They didn't see the harassment at work or the racist notes left in her mailbox. They didn't see her standing in the doorway of her children's room, watching them sleep and wondering if she could go on like this for even one more day. She lived a fast-paced life, often just trying to make it through. Then, after her mother died, Carolynn was sifting through her mother's belongings and found three birth certificates with three different names for the same baby-her. She embarked on a journey to discover the truth of her complicated family history, make peace with the past, and inspire others to persevere, like her, in the face of daunting obstacles. In You Will Know My Name, Carolynn takes readers by the hand and shows them what it means to PUSH-persevere until something happens-believing there is purpose in it all. She shares how time and again, with bold determination and ever-present faith, she's done what people said she couldn't do."Article| Carolynn G. A. Brooks| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The place of gay men and women in the community of faith has become one of the most divisive debates in the church today. Writer and activist Richard Cleaver takes a fresh approach to this issue by examining the struggles of gay men and lesbians in the church through the lens of liberation theology. He offers a "gay" reading of scripture, but one that is also spiritually challenging to all readers. Cleaver interweaves biblical reflections with historical, social, political, and personal commentary. He discusses personal identity issues and "coming out," the development of class consciousness as members of an oppressed group, and solidarity with other oppressed groups. This provocative book brings a new voice to the debate about the place of gays and lesbians in our churches."Article| Richard Cleaver| Statement ..."

Learn the painful yet inspiring true story of Chanel Miller, known as Emily Doe, who aims to reclaim her identity and voice after a years-long trial against Brock Turner. In the wake of a high-profile sexual assault case, Chanel Miller chose to stand up to the man who raped her but soon learned that she would lose herself in the process. With media surrounding the case, Chanel chose to remain anonymous and instead became referred to as “the victim,” “Emily Doe,” and even, “Brock Turner’s victim,” as if she was somehow connected to the stranger who raped her. Additionally, Turner’s defense team intended to silence her while twisting her words until they were no longer her own. They criticized her for drinking, took advantage of her memory loss, and created a narrative that benefited a rapist. In this book, Chanel has reclaimed the power of her voice and continues to fight for the rights of sexual assault survivors among a court system that has consistently let them down."Article| QuickRead| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Earth Knows My Name
☯ Full Synopsis : "Inspired by her own family’s immigrant history, Patricia Klindienst traveled the country, gathering stories of urban, suburban, and rural gardens created by people rarely presented in books about American gardens: Native Americans, immigrants from across Asia and Europe, and ethnic peoples who were here long before our national boundaries were drawn. In The Earth Knows My Name, she writes about the beautiful gardens she discovered, each one an island of hope, offering us a model—on a sustainable scale—of a truly restorative ecology. “A moving tribute to those who keep the ancient love of the land in their hearts, and who stand up to the giants of agrobusiness in their fight to preserve their cultural heritage.” —Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, UN Messenger of Peace, and author of Harvest for Hope: A Guide to Mindful Eating “Carefully weaving the threads of the cultures that were here before with those that came later, Klindienst makes her case for the deep, life-giving integrity of the earth . . . This is a poignant book that shows, without undue sentimentality, the underlying element we all share and can bring to life with our hands.” —Edie Clark, Orion Patricia Klindienst is a master gardener and an award-winning scholar and teacher. She lives in Guilford, Connecticut, and teaches creative writing each summer at Yale University."Article| Patricia Klindienst| Statement ..."
