Laurie Halse Anderson to Discuss Censorship on Banned Books Week Panel via Facebook Live (4/22)

Share this story with your world:

Laurie Halse Anderson will be in conversation with Betsy Gomez (Banned Books Week Coordinator) and Ellie Diaz (Office of Intellectual Freedom) to discuss censorship and encourage people to start thinking about and participating in Banned Books Week via Facebook Live on Wednesday, April 22, at 1:00 (ET).

Anderson’s latest book, SHOUT (Penguin), speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice–and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore. 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 critically acclaimed poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless.
