Calling all readers! Get ready for some stimulating discussions as we join to review both fiction and non-fiction books this year.
Book discussions are at 9:30 a.m. in the President's Dining Room (3rd floor, Webster Commons at SNU).
The book must be read to be able to discuss it. The moderator will ask for issues that were found in the reading and will begin the discussion. Participants continue the discussion, agreeing or disagreeing without being disagreeable.

I AM Malala by Malala Yousafzai
Our November book review will be the autobiography of Malala Yousafai, who at 17 became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. Her memoir, I Am Malala: The Story of the Girl Who Stood Up for Education and was Shot by the Taliban, was banned by the All Pakistan Private Schools’ Federation. Wikipedia states, “A reviewer for The Guardian called the book ‘fearless’ and stated that ‘the haters and conspiracy theorists would do well to read this book.’ A reviewer for The Washington Post called the book ‘riveting’ and wrote that ‘It is difficult to imagine a chronicle of a war more moving, apart from perhaps the diary of Anne Frank.” I Am Lalala also resulted in a documentary film and in a children’s book. Check the library or Amazon for I Am Malala by Malala Yousafai and Christina Lamb.
