2009 marks the 10th Anniversary of Laurie Halse Anderson’s novel Speak–a book that truly changed the face of Young Adult fiction. In celebration of this event, Penguin Young Readers Group is proud to be hosting a “Speak Up About Speak” campaign and is inviting members of the young adult literary community to share their thoughts on the novel and the important role it played in shaping YA literature.
Share a memory. Tell a story. Reveal the impact SPEAK had on you, your students, your colleagues, your friends. We invite you to “Speak Up About SPEAK”–take a moment on a break between sessions to be taped by Penguin’s video crew, stationed just outside Salon E. They’ll be there all day Monday, the first day of the workshop, no appointment necessary, just swing on by.
