If we run out of copies, we are happy to put you on the waiting list.

Plot synopsis of Know My Name:  “Universally acclaimed, rapturously reviewed, and an instant New York Times bestseller, Chanel Miller’s breathtaking memoir “gives readers the privilege of knowing her not just as Emily Doe, but as Chanel Miller the writer, the artist, the survivor, the fighter.” (The Wrap). Her story of trauma and transcendence illuminates a culture biased to protect perpetrators, indicting a criminal justice system designed to fail the most vulnerable, and, ultimately, shining 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. Entwining pain, resilience, and humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic.” (taken from https://www.chanel-miller.com/)

When you’re done reading, please return your copy to the Adult Reference Desk. Know My Name is also available to download and/or request for your tablet, phone, etc. via Overdrive or with the Libby App and your SJCPLS library card! Please call the Library at (904) 827-6950 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you! Sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
