Kim Echlin discusses her latest novel, Speak, Silence, which weaves together the stories of the women who led the charge to redefine sexual violence in war as a crime against humanity, a war crime, and a constituent element of genocide. In this fictional account of The Hague's ground-breaking war crimes trials that would shape history, Echlin explores the bond between women grappling with shared trauma, loss and sheer determination.

Award-winning author Kim Echlin lives in Toronto. She is the author of Elephant Winter, Dagmar's Daughter, Under the Visible Life and The Disappeared, which was nominated for the Scotiabank Giller Prize and won the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award for Fiction.
