A Night With Dawn Schiller

January 29, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Please join KCAHT in hearing the story of Author Dawn Schiller at theMaya Cinemas Bakersfield. Dawn will read from her book and speak of the state of human trafficking today in our communities. Dawn is painstakingly honest, this chilling memoir reveals how a teenager became immersed in the bizarre life of legendary porn star John Holmes. Starting with a childhood that molded her perfectly to fall for the seduction of “the king of porn,” this autobiography recounts the perilous road that Dawn Schiller traveled—from drugs and addiction to beatings, arrests, forced prostitution, and being sold to the drug underworld. After living through the horrific Wonderland murders of 1981, she entered protective custody, ran from the FBI, and turned in John Holmes to the police. This is the true story of a young girl’s harrowing escape from one of the most infamous public figures, her struggle to survive, and her recovery from unthinkable abuse. A Night With Dawn Schiller is presented in partnership with The Kern County Department of Human Services and The United Way of Kern County. Admission is free, seating is limited. Check our Facebook page for more details and to RSVP.
