一城一書: Know My Name 《知道我的名字》

One City One Book - Know My Name

我們一起閱讀。

三藩市公立圖書館很榮幸宣佈第16屆年度“一城一書”精選,《知道我的名字》 Know My Name 作者 香奈兒·米勒Chanel Miller.

三藩市為灣區本地人香奈兒·米勒鋪上紅地毯式歡迎。除了在亞洲藝術博物館展出原創藝術品外,三藩市公共圖書館還挑選了她的書《知道我的名字:回憶錄》(企鵝隨機之家)作為今年的"一城一書"。一個全市範圍的文學活動,一個城市一本書:三藩市閱讀鼓勵三藩市社區的成員在同一時間閱讀同一本書,然後討論它在各種公共節目。該計劃恰逢圖書館一年一度的《HERstory婦女歷史月》慶祝活動和性侵犯意識月,這是米勒宣導的事業。

香奈兒·米勒(Chanel Miller)令人嘆為觀止的回憶錄“廣受讚譽,好評如潮,並立即成為《紐約時報》的暢銷書,“讓讀者知道她不僅作為艾米麗·多伊(Emily Doe),但作為香奈兒米勒作家,藝術家,倖存者,戰士“(包裝)。 她關於創傷和超越的故事闡明了一種偏向於保護肇事者的文化,指示旨在使最弱勢群體失敗的刑事司法制度,並最終閃耀著在苦難中過著充實而美好生活的勇氣。

香奈兒·米勒(Chanel Miller)會在3月16日下午6時與記者羅賓·高山(Robynn Takayama)進行對話,並舉辦圍繞米勒(Miller)書主題的各種活動和研討會,其中包括讀書俱樂部,作家座談會,藝術小組中的一名女性藝術作家等等。

好評和讚譽《知道我的名字》Know My Name

“She has written a memoir that converts the ongoing experience of sexual assault into literature…Beautiful.“─The Atlantic

“To tell her story at all is enough…the fact that Miller tells it beautifully, caring enough for her reader to spin golden sentences from her pain, is a gift on top of a gift.” ─Vogue

“Compelling and essential…Miller reminds us that our stories are worth telling, that the names and the lives attached to those names matter.” ─San Francisco Chronicle

Know My Name is an act of reclamation. On every page, Miller unflattens herself, returning from Victim or Emily Doe to Chanel, a beloved daughter and sister…Know My Name marks the debut of a gifted young writer. Miller’s words are purpose. They are maps. And she is a treasure who has prevailed.”─Jennifer Weiner, The New York Times

“Miller is a gifted storyteller…Know her name, know her voice.”─The New Yorker

“Triumphant…Know My Name evokes a woman whose spirit hasn’t been broken—a study in what it means to strike back, not in revenge, but in reclamation.”—O Magazine

“Miller makes a powerful case for overhauling a system that retraumatizes victims of sexual violence even in successful cases, perpetuating the feedback loop that discourages victims from coming forward to seek justice.” ─Mother Jones
