Laurie Halse Anderson - Shout—in conversation with Jill Filipovic at GW Jack Morton Auditorium

Upcoming Event
Saturday, March 23, 2019 - 4:00pm

Join Laurie Halse Anderson, the award-winning author of SPEAK, who presents SHOUT, a searing poetic memoir for the #MeToo era. Anderson will be joined in conversation by a special guest special guest Jill Filipovic.

Laurie Halse 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 SHOUT (on sale March 12, 2019).

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, 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.

PLEASE NOTE: This event is for mature audiences only. Children under 13 will not be admitted.
