"Jane Doe No More" Author to speak at Library on 12/3


Donna Palomba, co-author of the book, Jane Doe No More will be speaking at the Library on Monday, December 3, 2012 at 6:30 pm.
In 1993, Donna Palomba was raped by a masked assailant in her own home in Waterbury, CT.
Jane Doe No More tells a story of one woman’s hunt for justice while fending off attacks by institutions designed to defend and protect her—the police department, the local government, and a community clinging to an outrageous claim that Donna had invented the crime to cover up a sexual affair.
Yet, her story is more than a victim’s tale of physical and emotional recovery. In 2007, Donna Palomba was the subject of a special two-hour Dateline episode about her case. Suddenly, she was Jane Doe no more, launching the Jane Doe No More organization and becoming a promoter of the rights of women and victims of sexual assault.  Please register for this event at hchlibrary.org.
