Girl Rising: Changing the World One Girl at a Time

Postponed until a later date due to the storm.

Celebrating girls’ resilience against all odds, award-winning author Tanya Lee Stone will discuss and answer questions about her latest book – Girl Rising*. In this free event, Stone will look at how removing barriers to girls’ education in developing countries creates better lives, not only for the girls, but also for safer, healthier, and more prosperous communities.

This program is offered by the One World Library Project. Please note that it has been scheduled during the day to encourage broad attendance by middle and high school students as well as community members. It is supported in part by the Vermont Humanities Council and is open to the public and accessible to individuals with disabilities.

*Girl Rising, both the book and movie, are available at Lawrence Memorial Library.
