Children’s Story Time: Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words

March 11, 2017 10:00am – 11:00am

Stories help bring art to life. We invite our youngest art aficionados for special story times thematically linked to the art on view.


Saturday, March 11

Courage and friendship are the focus of Story Time in March. Inspired by the exhibition Aftermath: The Fallout of War, we’ll read the true story of a young girl who never gives up on education in Malala Yousafzai: Warrior with Words by Karen Leggett Abouraya.

10:00am, Aftermath Exhibition Space, Gund Gallery.

The inspiring, true story of Malala Yousafzai, a young Pakistani girl who stands up and speaks out for every child’s right to education. Though she and two of her schoolmates were targeted by a Taliban gunman, a life-threatening injury only strengthened her resolve. Malala spoke at the U.N. on her 16th birthday in 2013, nine months after she was shot. Author and journalist Karen Leggett Abouraya, author of Hands Around the Library: Protecting Egypt’s Treasured Books, brings Malala’s story to life for young readers. Malala’s story is more than a biography of a brave and outspoken teenager. It is a testament to the power of education to change the world for boys and girls everywhere.-, courtesy of StarWalk Kids Media

We will also honor the humanity and resilience of refugee children in Four Feet, Two Sandals by Karen Lynn Williams.
