Virtual Event – Michelle Bowdler
October 1, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Magic City Books welcomes Michelle Bowdler, Executive Director of Health and Wellness at Tufts University and author of the new book Is Rape a Crime for a virtual author event.
Award-winning writer and public health executive Michelle Bowdler’s memoir indicts how sexual violence has been addressed for decades in our society, asking whether rape is a crime given that it is the least reported major felony, least successfully prosecuted, and fewer than 3% of reported rapes result in conviction. Cases are closed before they are investigated and DNA evidence sits for years untested and disregarded.
Michelle Bowdler will be in conversation with Alysia Abbott, author of Fairyland. The free event will be hosted on the Zoom platform, to register in advance visit: https://magiccitybooks.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_8oQGvKm2Qa6rKmic1KBvNw
