Save the date to attend the free, Go Big Read event with guest, Shiza Shahid, CEO and Co-Founder of the Malala Fund. Ms. Shahid’s public presentation is scheduled for Monday, October 27, 2014 beginning at 7:00 PM in Varsity Hall, Union South.
She and Malala Yousafzai seek to empower girls (and all children) through education. It is for these efforts that Malala has been awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi.
“Go Big Read” is UW-Madison’s common book program where students, staff and the community are invited to read the same book, then participate in a variety of related programs in-and-out of the classroom.
No tickets are required for the author event; it is FREE and open to the public.
