Hi my name is Skye and I am doing a book presentation for my English class on your anthology " Things we Haven't Said". I was wondering if you had anything to say to people who are going to read this book and what do you want readers to have/learn after they finish this book. Thank you!
Thanks so much for sending in a question and for taking on such an intense book for your project! What I would say to people who are going to read Things We Haven't Said is "Thank you." Thank you for taking the time to listen to uncomfortable truths, to hear these brave voices, to be present for these writers/survivors. If you can take any information you learn from the book and share it or help a friend, thank you for that, too.
What I would like readers to take away from the book is that the conversation around juvenile sexual violence is a very difficult but very important conversation to have. The problem won't go away until we address this issue and have these uncomfortable conversations in every corner of our society. If we all can become informed, we can all begin to make change. Thank you for being part of that change.
I wish you the best of luck on your project and let me know if you have any other questions!
