We had a super evening a great turn out to discuss this thought provoking book. As we settled into the lovely new home of one of our long-standing members and munched on the delicious snacks our hostess provided, we talked about I Am Malala, our most recent book.
All had liked it and the book gave many good points for discussion – how happy Malala’s family life was, despite the dangerous situation due to the ever increasing influence of the Taliban in her home country of Pakistan. The American’s in the group remarked on how little real information they had received via television/Internet/newspaper coverage of this time period; how little they understood the full political, military and cultural ramifications.
The group talked about how different Malala’s family’s “exile” to England is from our voluntary residence in Tilburg, yet how many similar challenges we face as strangers in a new culture. In spite of Malala’s multitude of awards including the Nobel Peace Prize, worldwide recognition and activism at the highest international levels, how her voice was that of a regular teenager with the trials and tribulation of a regular kid in many ways. We can recommend this inspiring book to all 🙂
