Know My Name


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Universally acclaimed, rapturously reviewed, winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for autobiography, 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). "I opened Know My Name with the intention to bear witness to the story of a survivor. Instead, I found myself falling into the hands of one of the great writers and thinkers of our time. Chanel Miller is a philosopher, a cultural critic, a deep observer, a writer's writer, a true artist. I could not put this phenomenal book down." --Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love Warrior and Untamed "Know My Name is a gut-punch, and in the end, somehow, also blessedly hopeful." --Washington Post 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 humor, this memoir will stand as a modern classic. Chosen as a BEST BOOK OF 2019 by The New York Times Book Review, The Washington Post, TIME, Elle, Glamour, Parade, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun, BookRiot

You Will Know My Name


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

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.

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.
