The Five by Hallie Rubenhold & Know My Name by Chanel Miller

Two non-fiction books, their narratives set hundreds of years apart — one in 1888, in Jack the Ripper’s London and the other in 2015, on the Stanford University campus in California. And yet, they are inextricably connected — as if a tapestry has been tightly woven, drawing the gap between these periods sharply together. There is so much to take in from each book, the first, a meticulously researched work of the Ripper’s canonical victims — five very different women who have ultimately been forgotten from history. The second, surely the most powerful account of sexual assault and its impact written in modern times. We urge you to read both — they are so important.
