Speak: The Graphic Novel Laurie Halse Anderson, Emily Carroll
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
Purchase, NY, May 5, 2017 -- For writers bitten by the graphic novel bug, Manhattanville's MFA program is sponsoring a unique Graphic Novel Writing workshop on Saturday, May 13, featuring a special presentation by Roz Chast, New Yorker cartoonist and author. Farrar Straus Giroux announced a graphic novel adaptation of Speak with art by Emily Carroll. Laurie Halse Anderson is the bestselling author of books for young readers, including the modern classic, Speak, which has received extensive praise and awards recognition and has been translated into over 16 languages. 'She has a real gift for portraying subtext, particularly dark and troubling emotional states. She also believes in hope,' says Halse Anderson. That's partly a matter of personal history: it wasn'tgraphic novels that I fell in love with as a child; it was the freshness, the immediacy, the mind-expanding wonderment of comics. Speak has 28 ratings and 6 reviews. In 1999, Laurie Halse Anderson published her novel Speak, a groundbreaking exploration of sexual assault and its aftermath. Look closely and you'll see me twitch when someone calls the latest comic book I' ve written a graphic novel. Emilie.❤ said: One of the greatest YA contemporaries ever in graphic novel form?!
