SAPAAC Book Club - Know My Name by Chanel Miller

Event Details

Sun, January 24, 2021
04:00PM - 05:30PM
Registration Period:
Ms. Angela Zhang

SAPAAC will host a book club over Zoom on Chanel Miller’s memoir Know My Name. In the memoir, she discusses her Asian American identity in relation to her identity as a woman who’s experienced sexual assault and seeking redress through the legal system. Our discussion will center her identity as an Asian American woman and discuss Asian American feminism more broadly.

We encourage you to read the book beforehand. But if you're interested in the topic and don't get a chance to read/finish the book, you're still more than welcome to join!

See this NYT op-ed: Why It Matters That ‘Emily Doe’ in the Brock Turner Case Is Asian-American.

A Zoom link will be sent to all registered participants 2 days prior to the event. To allow for free-flowing discussion, we will be split into smaller groups of ~5-10.

If you are interested in co-moderating or have any particular topics/ideas you’d like to discuss, please feel free to reach out to Angela Zhang (’16) at
