We are delighted to announce Laurie’s next book, courtesy of Viking Children’s Books!
A searing poetic memoir and call to action from the bestselling and award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson!
Viking Children’s Books, an imprint of Penguin Young Readers, will publish Shout, a powerful and thought-provoking memoir by New York Times bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson. Having first written about sexual assault in her groundbreaking, award-winning novel Speak, Anderson now shares her personal history as a rape survivor and the steps of her journey to healing in a collection of free verse that is as vulnerable as it is rallying.
