Event description
Award-winning Speak author Laurie Halse Anderson's New York Times bestselling poetic memoir SHOUT is a powerful call to action.

About this Event

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a critically acclaimed poetry memoir, SHOUT, that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven among deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before.

Praised as "captivating," "powerful," and "essential" by critics, this searing and soul-searching memoir is a denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts. SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice--and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

This special event will take place on Thursday, 12 March 2020 at 7 PM. Tickets include a signed copy of SHOUT. A portion of the proceeds will benefit RAINN.

*** Please be advised that this event will include discussion of mature topics. Therefore, this event is recommended for ages 13+. ***
