Laurie Halse Anderson: Shout

Discussion, Reading, Q&A

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for her fearless approach to advocating for and writing about survivors of sexual assault. Angry at how little society has changed since the publication of her groundbreaking novel »Speak«, she has now published the poetic memoir »Shout«. As timely as it is timeless, the book contains deeply personal stories, rants, and calls to action – a book that leaves its readers rattled, moved, and encouraged to ›shout‹.

The event is in English.
Hosted by Zara Rahman.

Text by Laurie Halse Anderson.
Translated by Bernadette Ott.

Recommended for grades 9 to 12
