Community Read

We are pleased to introduce the 2022-23 SCU Community Read! This year's book is Know My Name: A Memoir by Chanel Miller.

About the Book

In Know My Name, the reader experiences Chanel Miller's brilliantly-written memoir about her experience of being sexually assaulted by a Stanford University athlete and the many ways she copes and recovers from a life-altering experience. Formerly known as "Emily Doe—the unconscious intoxicated woman," Chanel Miller comes out to the world to describe what happened after the assault, the process of sharing her story, mental health challenges, bystander awareness, creativity and coping, the legal process, toxic masculinity, and many more themes that are of fundamental concern for our campus community.

Themes in this book include: identity, mental health, assault, healing power of storytelling, allyship, criminal justice, media representation and the multitude of stressors that today's college students face.
