Faith, Politics, and the Journey of One Girl – I am Malala
October 27, 5:30-6:30 pm Book Discussion
This year’s Go Big Read features I Am Malala, and autobiography written by Malala Yousafzai, a teenage girl shot by the Taliban for her and her family’s outspokenness. Join us at the Crossing for a conversation about this book, looking at how faith and politics intermix and what Malala has to teach the world about Islam. Come discuss the imperative of Christians to understand this area of the world wrought by conflict. Following our book discussion, those who wish to join the group will go to the UW’s Go Big Read to enjoy the featured speaker, Shiza Shahid, founder of The Malala Fund.
