From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Reviving Ophelia, Another Country, and The Shelter of Each Other comes an inspirational book that shows how words can change the world.

Writing to Change the World is a beautiful paean to the transformative power of words. Encapsulating Mary Pipher''s years as a writer and therapist, it features rousing commentary, personal anecdotes, memorable quotations, and stories of writers who have helped reshape society. It is a book that will shake up readers'' beliefs, expand their minds, and possibly even inspire them to make their own mark on the world.
