"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."


Books with Buzz, our book group featuring trendy reads, meets at 7:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of even-numbered months. 

With the buzz of summer in the air the group will read Shout by Laurie Halse Anderson for August 15th book discussion. The group will get back into the school mode by discussing award winning children’s and young adult literature selections. Buzz selections are available at the reference desk one month before the discussion.
