A local author is sharing personal experiences in her new book, which she’s launching in a place that’s important to her.

Karen Moe’s Victim: A Feminist Manifesto from a Fierce Survivor, is being released this week and the launch is Wednesday, March 30, at the Lantzville Pub. Moe wrote approximately half the book there at her regular spot, table 104, and that’s where she’ll be this week for a reading, question-and-answer and book signing.

Moe is an art critic, visual and performance artist, author and feminist activist, according to a press release introducing Victim.

The book relates her personal story of being a “carefree, independent young woman” who was abducted, assaulted and raped three decades ago while travelling. Moe said Victim is not a crime story nor a tale of survival, but rather a manifesto.

“Moe uses her trauma to shine a light on how not only violence against women, but all exploitation, is a natural result of patriarchal hierarchy,” the release notes. “Yes, this is Moe’s story of triumph over violence, but it is also a call to action for both men and women.”

Victim is published by Vigilance Press and available online at www.karenmoeauthor.com.

WHAT’S ON … Author Karen Moe launches Victim: A Feminist Manifesto from a Fierce Survivor on Wednesday, March 30, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Lantzville Pub. $1 from the sale of each book that night will be donated to Haven Society.
