Participants will discuss I Am Malala (Young Readers Edition), and then go “Off the Pages” with a fun activity!
Book Description: Malala Yousafzai was only ten years old when the Taliban took control of her region. They said women weren’t allowed to go to the market. They said girls couldn’t go to school. Malala fought for her right to be educated, and on October 9, 2012, she nearly lost her life for the cause. She was shot point-blank while riding the bus on her way home from school. No one expected her to survive. Now Malala is an international symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize nominee. In this Young Readers Edition of her bestselling memoir, we hear firsthand the remarkable story of a girl who knew from a young age that she wanted to change the world — and did.
