About the event

Book Signing Kerrie Taber Quarantining Hate Wednesday, July 31 at 5 PM

Kerrie Taber uncovered a horrible truth about her grandfather's actions during World War II. After seeing the rise of hate-based crimes, she decided to use her story along with research to show how hate can be prevented from spreading when society pushes back against it. Quarantining Hate is a journey of trying to understand how the grandfather she loved could do the deeds he did and how there could be hope to turn the tide of rising hate-based violence. The book is a combination of memoir, history, sociology, and psychology with a little hope added in.

Dr. Kerrie Taber grew up in Northern Ohio. After graduating from the University of Toledo with a degree in electrical engineering, she moved down to Austin, Texas. While working for a high tech company, Kerrie had the opportunity to travel to several overseas countries. After obtaining her MBA and Doctorate of Management, she moved to Fort Smith to teach at the University of Arkansas Fort Smith.

She has become a part of the Fort Smith community over the past thirteen years through coaching soccer, serving on the board of nonprofits, and helping put on fundraising events.

Writing Quarantining Hate has been a project she felt compelled to do after seeing the rise of hate and hate crimes. She hopes that the book will help people start discussions about the difficult topics around hate.
