Well! Welcome to September, friends! A busy month for us all — Fashion Week, TIFF, the Emmys, back to school, we’ve got a book deadline, the US Open is happening, the Downton Abbey movie is opening, Harry and Meghan are going on tour, and a whole bunch of other stuff is happening that I can’t remember! Get some sleep, we will need all our energy.
At the New York Times: “For four years, the woman whose Stanford University sexual assault case caused a public outcry, has been known only as ‘Emily Doe.’ In her new memoir, “Know My Name,” which charts her life since then, she reveals her real name: Chanel Miller.”
