SHOUT – Audiobook
The New York Times bestselling poetic memoir and call to action from the award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson! Narrated by the author.
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.
Praise for SHOUT – Audiobook
“Shout, read by the author, arrives at the perfect moment, is carried by the perfect voice, and will inspire listeners to shout their own truths. … Poetry is very often written to be heard, and this collection in particular ought to be heard—spoken proudly by Anderson, out loud, and at full volume.” Heather Booth, BooklistBack to Books
