I am MalalaJoin us for a discussion of the memoir I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot by the Taliban by Malala Yousafzai

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.

A Feathered River Across the Sky book coverA Feathered River Across the Sky: The Passenger Pigeon’s Flight to Extinction by Joel Greenberg. The last passenger pigeon, Martha, died 100 years ago in captivity at the Cincinnati Zoo. Although a billion pigeons crossed the skies near Toronto in May of 1860, little more than 50 years later they were extinct. Greenberg, a naturalist and research associate of the Field Museum, tells a cautionary tale of what happened to this epic bird. He is instrumental in Project Passenger Pigeon, which focuses attention on human-caused extinctions. Reviewed by Patricia Rush, past president of ECOS: the Environmental Clearinghouse

The Monday series of talks is held at 12:00 noon in the McChesney Room of the Central Library on Clinton Street. You may bring a bag lunch; coffee and tea are available for a nominal fee. The room is equipped with special devices for the hearing-impaired.
