In conversation with Rukmini Callimachi
Co-presented by BAM and Greenlight Bookstore
Launch of We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World.

BAM welcomes Nobel Peace Prize laureate and New York Times bestselling author Malala Yousafzai (I Am Malala and Malala’s Magic Pencil) to discuss her powerful new book, We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World. New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimachi leads this powerful discussion about the displacement of millions worldwide through the lens of Yousafzai’s own stunning account of the girls she’s met in refugee camps and cities—girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they've ever known.

The author’s net sales proceeds from the book go to Malala Fund, a nonprofit organization working for a world where all girls can learn for 12 years and lead without fear. Copies of We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World will come with a signed bookplate

Malala Yousafzai, the educational campaigner from Swat Valley, Pakistan, came to public attention by writing for BBC Urdu about life under the Taliban. Using the pen name Gul Makai, she often spoke about her family’s fight for girls’ education in her community. In October 2012, Malala was targeted by the Taliban and shot in the head as she was returning from school on a bus. She miraculously survived and has continued her campaign for education. In recognition of her courage and advocacy, Malala was honored with the National Youth Peace Prize in Pakistan in 2011 and won both the International Children's Peace Prize and the Amnesty International Ambassador of Conscience Award in 2013. She is the youngest winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and was named one of Time's 100 Most Influential People in the World. Malala continues to champion universal access to education through Malala Fund.
