Please join Dean Elizabeth Kronk Warner for her monthly dean’s book review. The book to be reviewed will be, Missoula: Rape & Justice in a College Town by Jon Krakauer. This book was selected because April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The book is a stark, powerful, meticulously reported narrative about a series of sexual assaults at the University of Montana – stories that illuminate the human drama behind the national plague of campus rape. From January 2008 through May 2012 the Department of Justice investigated 350 sexual assaults. Only a few of these assaults were properly handled by either the university or local authorities. Sexual assault is one of the most underreported crimes in America.
The webinar will be held from 8:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m., MDT on Wednesday, April 29th. Please RSVP with the link provided in this email. Once registered you will receive the link to participate. If you have any questions please email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The book may be purchased or downloaded to your Kindle or Nook. It is not required that you purchase or read the book to participate in this book review.
Please note this book is a “tough read”, since the sexual assaults are described in detail.
This discussion will provide a 0.5 Utah CLE credit (pending).
