NPR Interview with Laurie Halse Anderson

Not only did I have the great pleasure of attending the Inaugural Albany Book Fest this weekend, but I also had the chance to talk about teaching sexual violence with none other than Laurie Halse Anderson-you know the author of Speak. It was an excellent conversation, and one I think could spark great discussion in the classroom for educators who teach the novel or about the topic. Here’s the article I that I wrote if you’re interested in that, and if you have seven minutes to spare, give a listen. It will be time well spent (click the image or link below).
