Event Details

Join Kristen Stehel of the Utah State Library in a live online book group discussion of "The Favored Daughter: One woman's fight to lead Afghanistan into the future” by Fawzia Koofi. USL has 15 copies of this book and more copies can be obtained via Interlibrary Loan. Get your copies today: http://library.utah.gov/programs/ill/
 
The story: Left to die in the sun after birth by her mother, Fawzia Koofi survived, and perseverance in the face of extreme hardship has defined her life ever since. Despite the abuse of her family, the exploitive Russian and Taliban regimes, the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her life, she rose above her fate to becoming the first Afghani woman Parliament speaker. Today, Koofi is one of the most outspoken critics of human rights violations against Afghani women and children and uses her influence to bring global attention to the situation on the ground in Afghanistan, even as a frustrated American military considers relinquishing it to the Taliban. Her story captures the political and cultural moment in Afghanistan. More about "The Favored Daughter."
