Description

Join the New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson, for a discussion and signing of her highly-anticipated new book SHOUT – a searing, poetic memoir for the #MeToo era. This event is ticketed; please see below for important information about entry. Due to mature content, ages 13+ are suggested.

SIGNING INFORMATION:

Laurie will sign following the discussion and audience Q&A. You must purchase a copy of SHOUT via a General Admission ticket or from B&N Tulsa to enter the signing line. Laurie will sign additional books purchased in store or brought from home.

About SHOUT:

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 poetry memoir 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 between deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Searing and soul-searching, this important 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.
