A Reading & Book Discussion with Rachael Brooks

January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Kick off the New Year with author and nonprofit speaker, Rachael Brooks, at McIntyre’s Books! She will be reading from and answering questions about her new memoir, BEADS, on Saturday, January 18 at 2 PM. The event is free to attend.

About BEADS: In this incredible story, Rachael Brooks details her journey from rape victim to resilient survivor. She shares her experience suffering a brutal attack, confronting the devastating justice system, and ultimately discovering the other side of trauma: forgiveness and peace. BEADS reveals the realities and challenges survivors face, as well as the roller coaster of emotions throughout their journey. Evoking outrage and hope, author Rachael Brooks tackles issues surrounding sexual assault that are still prevalent today. When will enough be enough? Rachael’s definitive answer is “now.”

“An eloquent and unsettling story of recovery that features solid advice and encouragement for other trauma victims.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“We hear and watch news accounts of #MeToo stories. But Brooks’ book ensures you deeply feel what it’s like to be a victim of sexual assault. There is much to learn from her story. I highly recommend this book. It will stay within you as a stark reminder of the reality of these events, frustrating aftermath, and the bravery and perseverance involved in ‘putting yourself back together again.'”
– Dee Stribling, Writer & Poet; Hillsborough, NC’s 2018-2020 Poet Laureate
