Sohaila Abdulali and Chanel Miller at Elizabeth Street Garden, McNally Jackson

Join Sohaila Abdulali, author of What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape, and Chanel Miller, author of Know My Name: A Memoir, in conversation at an outdoor, socially-distanced event in Elizabeth Street Garden in New York, hosted by McNally Jackson Books, on Wednesday 23 September at 6 pm EDT.
Drawing on her own experience (Sohaila was gang-raped as a teenager in Mumbai), her research, her work with hundreds of survivors as the head of a rape crisis center, and three decades of grappling with the issue as a feminist intellectual and writer, What We Talk About When We Talk About Rape examines our contemporary discourse about rape.
‘This book is absolutely amazing, unlike anything I’ve ever read before. I would urge everybody to read it. It’s about feminism and women’s place in society, not only about rape.’—Jane Garvey, BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour

Due to COVID-19 considerations, socially-distanced seating will be restricted to 40 attendees, masks required. RSVP HERE for your free ticket confirmation. Books cannot be purchased at the Garden, but can be pre-purchased from the bookshop.
