A MEMOIR BY THE YOUNGEST RECIPIENT OF THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE

“I come from a country that used to be created at the hours of darkness. When I almost died it used to be just after midday.”

When the Taliban took keep watch over of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education.

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she used to be fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She used to be shot within the head at point-blank range even as riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to continue to exist.

Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an bizarre journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a circle of relatives uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, 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.

I AM MALALA will make you consider within the power of one person’s voice to inspire change on this planet.
