Adult Book Club: I Am Malala

Come to the Moorhead Public Library every 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:30pm for the Adult Book Club. This month, September 18th, we will be reading I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai. “I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family 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. When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out.  Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. I Am Malala will make you believe in the power of one person’s voice to inspire change in the world.” (From the publisher.) Stop by for a great discussion; new faces are welcomed :)

Adult Book Club: Life of Pi

Come to the Moorhead Public Library every 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm for the Adult Book Club. This month, February 20th, we will be reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel. “Life of Pi is a masterful and utterly original novel that is at once the story of a young castaway who faces immeasurable hardships on the high seas, and a meditation on religion, faith, art and life that is as witty as it is profound. Using the threads of all of our best stories, Yann Martel has woven a glorious spiritual adventure that makes us question what it means to be alive, and to believe.” (From the Publisher.)
