    Contact: Madhu Gupta   860-447-1411 x 3   mgupta@plnl.org
   

We will discuss "I Am Malala" by Malala Yousafzai.

Malala was a student in Pakistan when the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley. Her father had encouraged his daughter to attend school in a society that gives more privileges to sons than daughters. She spoke out for her right to an education and was shot in the head while riding a bus home from school. After a miraculous recovery, Malala became a global symbol of peaceful protest and at age 16 the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Copies of the book will be available in the weeks prior to the meeting. Book discussion will be facilitaed by Mongi Dhaouadi, the executive director of Council of American- Islamic Relations CT (CAIR CT).
