Laurie Halse Anderson Announces Memoir of Sexual Assault Survival

Laurie Halse Anderson, who embodies the best of what YA literature can do for teen readers, is releasing a memoir about her own sexual assault. To call this book important would like calling the sun a campfire.

“I lost my voice for a very long time after I was raped,” says Anderson. “I lost my self, too. Shout is a poetry tapestry that shares the darkness of my silent years and shows how writing helped me speak up. Shout is a declaration of war against rape culture and a celebration of survival.”
