Carrie Goldberg on Nobody's Victim, with Jamia Wilson

  • Astoria Bookshop 31-29 31st Street Astoria, NY, 11106 United States (map)

Join author Carrie Goldberg on Thursday, August 22nd at 7 p.m. for a reading and conversation about her book, Nobody's Victim: Fighting Psychos, Stalkers, Pervs, and Trolls, with author Jamia Wilson.

Nobody's Victim is an unflinching look at a hidden world most people don’t know exists—one of stalking, blackmail, and sexual violence, online and off—and the incredible story of how one lawyer, determined to fight back, turned her own hell into a revolution.

Riveting and an essential timely conversation-starter, Nobody's Victim invites readers to join Carrie on the front lines of the war against sexual violence and privacy violations as she fights for revenge porn and sextortion laws, uncovers major Title IX violations, and sues the hell out of tech companies, schools, and powerful sexual predators. Her battleground is the courtroom; her crusade is to transform clients from victims into warriors.

Carrie Goldberg is a victim's rights lawyer in Brooklyn, litigating for victims of sexual harassment, sexual assault, and blackmail, and is most known for her work involving revenge porn.
