Event description

Description

This program is suitable for adults aged 16+

All programs are free. Bookings are essential.


Stalked: The Human Target is a detailed account of the effects of stalking, which is experienced by a shockingly high proportion of the population. Celebrities like David Letterman and Madonna are the highest profile targets of stalkers, but ordinary people are also targeted, harassed and bullied.


Rachel Cassidy, herself the target of a stalker, tells the stories of people who have been pursued by stalkers and the devastating effects that has had on their lives. Sometimes the stalker’s behaviour becomes violent. Dancing with the Stars judge Mark Wilson had two dancing schools burned to the ground and his career destroyed. The man who stalked Jodie Foster attempted to assasinate President Reagan to gain her attention.

Stalked is a perceptive analysis of stalking from the inside – told by the targets, the stalkers, and the experts who deal with the havoc wreaked by the people who harass or persecute others with unwanted and obsessive attention.

Rachel Cassidy is the author of ‘Stalked’ . ‘Stalked’ has also been released in the US and was released in the UK in August. Rachel is currently writing 4 more books -3 for adult readership and one children’s book.

Rachel Cassidy has been targeted herself and endured a horrendous ordeal while trying to escape from the perpetrators. Rachel has worked tirelessly for various causes including youth at risk, youth mental health issues and for the health and well-being of women and children including working with the late Nelson Mandela.

Book Face Gungahlin will have books for sale and signing at this event.
