Harvard alum Winnie M Li (AB ’00), author and activist, launches her debut novel DARK CHAPTER in an exclusive event at The Library private members club.
Inspired by her own real-life experience of a violent crime and its aftermath, DARK CHAPTER has been listed by Stylist Magazine among their 'Top 10 Debut Novels of 2017.’ The book has received extensive media attention, including The Mail on Sunday, BBC World News, BBC Radio Ulster, RTE Radio One, The Pool, and The Metro.
In writing the book, Winnie used crime fiction as a means of exploring the same issue that is also the focus of her academic and activist work: narratives around sexual assault. In this exclusive signing and reading session, Winnie will discuss her impetus for transforming a deeply personal experience into a crime novel which has been described as 'gripping,' 'nerve-shredding,' and 'intense.'
'Brave, raw, and strikingly original, it is a story that will resonate for many years.' - The Daily Mail
'An important and moving book about rape and the long process of recovery.' - Stylist
‘Not only highly readable, but also incredibly important… It is also deeply courageous.’ — Wasafiri Magazine
Copies of the book will be available for purchase
