OCTOBER EVENTS


Book Discussion: Book Discussion: "I Am Malala"
Tuesday, October 21, 2:00pm

For the first time, the public libraries in Larchmont and Mamaroneck are bringing our entire community together by reading. They have selected I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai for this community-wide event. At Home on the Sound members are invited to read I am Malala and participate in this discussion  led by Mamaroneck librarian Lori Friedl. RSVP: 914/899-3150.

Books are available at the Mamaroneck and Larchmont libraries as well as Anderson’s Book Shop on Chatsworth Avenue in Larchmont.

About the Book: 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. In 2012, when she was fifteen, she was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who 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.
