More than 20 years after her groundbreaking novel “Speak,” Laurie Halse Anderson has taken another step with her poetry memoir “Shout.” Her book reveals her own history as a survivor of sexual assault and deals with feelings of helplessness, depression and anger - but also with the healing process.

Laurie Halse Anderson says in this interview: “Sometimes I want to set the world on fire and just start attacking government buildings with a large hammer because there are institutional changes that have to happen.” We talked about what those changes are and how we can all do our part.
