The above video is Laurie Halse Anderson reciting a poem that she wrote based on the letters she received in response to those who read her novel Speak. It’s very powerful, and something I recommend you listen to by yourself before you let your children listen to it. Speak is a novel for a mature teen audience.
Thanks to Penguin Young Readers, I hosted a giveaway for the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson for two of my lucky readers to win. I’ve got to say thank you to the 273 readers who entered my Speak Book Giveaway. The randomly selected winners, compliments of Random.org, are listed below.
#43 Jeannine won
How do you know if you won? I just share the winner’s first name here, but I sent each winner an email. I need to receive a response from the winners within 48 hours. If I don’t hear from a winner within that time frame, I will draw a new winner.
Didn’t win? I’ve still got another book giveaway by the same author, enter here for a chance to win Wintergirls.
