I am Malala by Malala Yousafzaia & Christina Lamb

I am Malala is 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.

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 became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world.

AND, a special opportunity on Tuesday, October 27.  Earlier this year the TED group read Steve Patterson’s recent publication The Lost Gospels.  As a special treat, Steve Patterson will be skyping with the TED group on October 27 from 6:30-7:00pm to share additional reflections on his book.  SO, if you have read the book or are just a Patterson fan – please join us at 6pm for potluck and 6:30 to “chat with Steve.”
