ORDER TICKETS HERE 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, twenty years later, she reveals her personal history as a rape survivor in a searing poetic memoir, SHOUT. Praised as "captivating," "powerful," and "essential" by critics, this soul-searching 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. An instant New York Times bestseller, SHOUT received nine starred reviews and was named a best book of the year by TIME, NPR, Seventeen, Parents, and others. *Please be advised that this event will include discussion of mature topics. Therefore, this event is recommended for ages 13+.
