Last week we had a very good discussion on the book “I am Malala”. We had a very fun evening.
In April we will meet on the second Thursday which is April 10 and we will discuss at Joni in Hauser the book The Seamstress by Frances De Pontes Peebles. According to Joni though the book has a lot of pages it is an easy read.
If you know anyone interested in getting the book club email and is not getting it, please forward this one and let everyone know who we should ad on the email list.
I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai and Christina Lamb
Selected by Monique Stevens
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.
On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.
Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she has become a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.
I AM MALALAis the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.
I AM MALALAwill make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world.
