Virtual Author Event: Amy Reed (The Nowhere Girls) Talk and Q&A

Groton Public Library and Raymond Library invite you to a virtual author event with Amy Reed, author of The Nowhere Girls. The book highlights important conversations around sexuality and consent, making it an ideal read for April's Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Copies will be available for checkout at both libraries on a first come, first serve basis prior to the event. Please register for this free event. 

Register Here!

About the Book

Three misfits come together to avenge the rape of a fellow classmate and trigger a change in the misogynist culture at their high school transforming the lives of everyone around them in this searing and timely story.

Who are the Nowhere Girls?

They’re everygirl. But they start with just three:

Grace Salter is the new girl in town, whose family was run out of their former community after her southern Baptist preacher mom turned into a radical liberal after falling off a horse and bumping her head.

Rosina Suarez is the queer punk girl in a conservative Mexican immigrant family, who dreams of a life playing music instead of babysitting her gaggle of cousins and waitressing at her uncle’s restaurant.

Erin Delillo is obsessed with two things: marine biology and Star Trek: The Next Generation, but they aren’t enough to distract her from her suspicion that she may in fact be an android.

When Grace learns that Lucy Moynihan, the former occupant of her new home, was run out of town for having accused the popular guys at school of gang rape, she’s incensed that Lucy never had justice. For their own personal reasons, Rosina and Erin feel equally deeply about Lucy’s tragedy, so they form an anonymous group of girls at Prescott High to resist the sexist culture at their school, which includes boycotting sex of any kind with the male students.

Told in alternating perspectives, this groundbreaking novel is an indictment of rape culture and explores with bold honesty the deepest questions about teen girls and sexuality.

About the Author

Amy Reed is the author of the contemporary young adult novels BeautifulCleanCrazyOver YouDamagedInvincibleUnforgivableThe Nowhere Girls, and The Boy and Girl Who Broke the World. She is also the editor of Our Stories, Our Voices. She is a feminist, mother, and quadruple Virgo who enjoys running, making lists, and wandering around the mountains of western North Carolina where she lives. You can find her online at AmyReedFiction.com.

Zoom meeting information will be emailed to our newsletter subscribers, registered attendees, and by request. The Library is taking security measures to make this the best experience possible. Programming may be affected or cancelled due to COVID-19.

Exploring Resources from the Me Too Movement (Virtual)

In 2017 the #metoo hashtag went viral after the sexual-abuse allegations were made against Harvey Weinstein, but the Me Too organization was actually founded in 2006 by Tarana Burke. The organizations website, metoomvmt.org, provides resources for those who have been through sexual assault. We will explore these resources in a video that will be posted on Instagram, Facebook and Groton Municipal Televison's YouTube channel.

You can pick up a Grab and Go craft bag on alternating Wednesdays this spring between the hours of 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM just outside the Library's vestibule. Just look for our Junior Friends' cart.
