Unbound: Malala Yousafzai in conversation with Rukmini Callimachi
Launch of We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World
Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore
As part of BAM’s Unbound series, New York Times best-selling author (I Am Malala and Malala’s Magic Pencil) and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai comes to BAM to discuss her powerful new book, We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World, with New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimachi. Millions of people are displaced worldwide—too often because they had to choose between life and death. In the book, Yousafzai introduces some of the people behind the statistics and tells her own story of living as an internally displaced person in Pakistan to show readers what it means to have no choice but to leave your home. She also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her various journeys to refugee camps and the cities where refugee girls and their families have settled—girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they’ve ever known. In a time of immigration crises, war, and border conflicts, We Are Displaced is an important reminder of the need for universal human rights.
The evening features a discussion between Yousafzai and Callimachi. Audience questions will be gathered in advance. The event will be ASL interpreted.
Copies of We Are Displaced will be available for a 15% discount on the night of the program. The author’s net sales proceeds from the book will go to Malala Fund, which is a nonprofit organization working for a world where all girls can learn for 12 years and lead without fear. Copies of the book can also be purchased through BAM’s website for donation to students participating in BAM’s education programs.
