Linda Dynel Talk at HWS
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

In conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness month, social justice advocate and novelist Linda Dynel will offer a talk on Tuesday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. in the Geneva Room. 

In 2014, Dynel self-published the memoir “Leaving Dorian” about her journey as a survivor of domestic abuse. The book has been praised for its insight into intimate partner violence that often takes place behind closed doors, and the psychological toll of abuse and unacceptance that survivors can experience.

While on the Colleges' campus, Dynel will also speak to students in Associate Professor of Anthropology and Sociology Jim Sutton's "Social Deviance" class, who are reading her book as part of their course material.  

Dynel is the recipient of the Zonta Club of Niagara Falls, New York 2016 Woman of Distinction Award in recognition of her continued efforts to educate the public on the issue of domestic violence and for her support of Zonta International's "Say NO! To Violence" program.

Copies of her book "Leaving Dorian" will be available for signed purchase after the talk. The event is sponsored by the Department of Anthropology and Sociology, as well as the Office Title IX Programs and Compliance.
