The Enduring Power of the Books That Change Our Lives, featuring Laurie Halse Anderson

This week’s powerful episode features Laurie Halse Anderson, who was one of the early voices of the #MeToo movement about two decades before survivors started to share their stories en masse. We talk with Laurie about writing your truth, why the books on the Banned Books List make for good lifetime reading, and why kids and teens are usually the smartest, savviest readers, and also the toughest critics. If you have your own survivor story, this is also an important and validating episode you won’t want to miss.
