Malala Yousafzai is a Pakistani school pupil and education activist who was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus on Oct. 9, 2012. The assassination attempt sparked a national and international outpouring of support for Yousafzai.
In the Apr. 29, 2013, issue of Time Magazine, Yousafzai was featured on the magazine's front cover as one of "The 100 Most Influential People in the World". She was the winner of Pakistan's first National Youth Peace Prize and was nominated for the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. On July 12, 2013, Yousafzai's 16th birthday, she spoke at a youth assembly at the United Nations headquarters in New York to call for worldwide access to education. During the fall of 2013, Yousafzai was recognized as Harvard University's humanitarian of the year.
FutureCycle Press is releasing a Good Works anthology on Oct. 9, 2013. honoring Yousafzai entitled Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai. All proceeds from any sales will be donated to the Malala Fund. ACC will facilitate a reading of this anthology on Nov. 8, with contributors Kathleen Cain, Madelyn Garner, Joseph Hutchison (anthology co-editor), Anita Jepson-Gilbert, Rita Brady Kiefer and Kathryn Winograd all scheduled to share their work.
Education activists from WDA4Pakistan, founded by Karen Overton, along with Josna Azim and her son, Asher Azim, will also be on hand.
A contest is open to high school students for poems that in some way reflect on Malala’s experience or their own experiences overcoming educational hurdles. Poems should be submitted to Juliet Hubbell by Oct. 31. The winner and runners up will be asked to read at the event.
For more information, or to inquire about accommodations, please contact Dr. Kathryn Winograd at firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.797.5815.
