One Hour in Paris shortlisted for the BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction
We’re delighted that Karyn L. Freedman’s memoir One Hour in Paris is a finalist for the BC National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction! About One Hour in Paris, the jury says:
“Karyn L. Freedman’s One Hour In Paris is a book about rape, but, more than that, it’s a book about our collective failure to address the ways in which sexual violence shames and silences its victims and taints our society as a whole. With stylistic clarity, Freedman, a philosopher, offers a harrowing account of her assault and its repercussions, and then moves on to an analysis of why sexual violence is both pervasive and under-reported. One Hour in Paris is a slim book but a powerful one, and has the potential to catalyze the kind of dialogue that can lead to social change.”
