We are proud to announce that to celebrate the release of her new book, Laurie Halse Anderson will be appearing at Rosemont College. In 1999, her award-winning novel Speak opened the door for a national dialogue about rape culture and consent. Now, twenty years later, she reveals her personal history as a rape survivor in a searing poetic memoir, SHOUT.
In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life. Searing and soul-searching, devastating and triumphant, SHOUT 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.
This event is for mature audiences only. Children under 13 will not be admitted.
