CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Michelle Knight is expected to field questions from an audience during a public book signing at the Woodmere Barnes & Noble location on May 11.

That same week marks six years since Knight, along with Gina DeJesus and Amanda Berry, escaped from imprisonment by Ariel Castro.

Knight was kidnapped in 2002 and held captive for more than a decade inside Castro’s Seymour Avenue home in Cleveland. Castro impregnated her several times and then beat her until she miscarried, Knight says.

He went on to abduct Berry and DeJesus and sexually abused the three women. The three were able to escape together in May 2013.

Knight, who also now goes by Lily Rose Lee, will be signing copies of “Life After Darkness: Finding Healing & Happiness After the Cleveland Kidnappings,” her latest book that details her life and recovery after the traumatic kidnapping.

The question and answer session is scheduled for 2 p.m.
