BAM welcomes Nobel Peace Prize laureate and New York Times bestselling author Malala Yousafzai (author of I Am Malala and Malala’s Magic Pencil) to discuss her powerful new book, We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World. New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimachi leads this powerful discussion about the displacement of millions worldwide through the lens of Yousafzai’s own stunning account of the girls she’s met in refugee camps and cities—girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they’ve ever known.
The author’s net sale proceeds from the book go to Malala Fund, a nonprofit organization which champions every girl’s right to 12 years of free, safe, quality education. Copies of We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World will come with a signed bookplate. Books may be purchased with tickets and picked up at the event or purchased onsite, and attendees have the option to purchase additional copies for donation.
