Tarana Burke National Book Event
Along with other independent bookstores around the country, and Flatiron Books’ An Oprah Book imprint, we are pleased to be helping present this virtual program with Tarana Burke for her new book, Unbound: My Story of Liberation and the Birth of the Me Too Movement. Ms. Burke, a longtime activist, who started the “Me Too” movement that has grown into something worldwide and enduring, here for the first time tells the remarkable story of her journey.
"Burke sings a Black girl's song and Unbound stands alongside I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and The Color Purple, as a coming of age story that is at once searingly painful, brilliant, and beautiful. Tarana Burke is known around the world for her activism and leadership. Now she will be known as an extraordinary writer." —Imani Perry.
"Intensely moving and unapologetically frank, Burke’s fearless memoir will uplift and inspire the next generation of survivors, advocates, and truth-tellers." —Publishers Weekly.
"Burke's Unbound is worthy of being considered next to I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings as one of those rare books that will unfold and welcome parts of us we thought we'd completely hid until the earth is gone. Unbound is the one we readers and writers have been waiting for." —Kiese Laymon.
Tarana Burke will be joined by various guests at the NYC Botanical Gardens. The event will be pretaped to air on September 23rd at 4 pm Pacific Time/7 PM Eastern Time on Zoom Webinar with the author participating in a live audience Q&A during the event.
Registration on Eventbrite is required. Tickets are free and when registering for the event, you may also order a copy of Unbound (shipped via Media Mail to addresses in the U.S. only).
Presented by Flatiron Books: An Oprah Book, Elliott Bay Book Company, and numerous independent bookstores around the U.S.
