Books on Tap Reads Missoula
Tuesday August 29, 2017
Missoula, Montana, is a typical college town, home to a highly regarded state university whose beloved football team inspires a passionately loyal fan base. Between January 2008 and May 2012, hundreds of students reported sexual assaults to the local police. Few of the cases were properly handled by either the university or local authorities. In this, Missoula is also typical.
Taking the town as a case study for a crime that is prevalent throughout the nation, Krakauer documents the experiences of five victims: their fear and self-doubt in the aftermath; the skepticism directed at them by police, prosecutors, and the public; their bravery in pushing forward and what it cost them.
To RSVP for our Books on Tap discussion of Jon Krakauer's Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town please go to: meetup.com/Stratford-book-club-social-hub/. We'll get settled, order food/drinks, and catch up with everyone at 7pm on Tuesday, July 25th at The Sitting Duck Tavern. Our book discussion starts at 7:30pm. Cheers!
