BookPeople presents Laurie Halse Anderson: SHOUT
New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Laurie Halse Anderson will be in Austin for a discussion and signing of her new book, SHOUT, a searing, poetic memoir for the #MeToo era. Former Texas Sen. Wendy Davis will moderate the discussion.
Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. In 1999, her groundbreaking, award-winning novel, Speak, opened the door for a national dialogue about rape culture and consent. Now, 20 years later, she reveals her personal history as a rape survivor in a searing poetic memoir, SHOUT.
