Taiwan! - Tuesday, February 10, 2015 - 7pm
Gary and Gaila Olsen will recount their adventures traveling thru Taiwan, where their son Henry lives and writes. Visit the astonishingly sheer solid marble gorges of Taroko National Park, the dizzyingly high observation deck of the Taipei 101 tower, the ragged coral reefs of Kenting, and the still-fresh war scars of Kinmen Island situated just a stone's throw from mainland China. Why Taiwan?! Come find out!
Book Discussion: I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai -- Saturday, February 14, 2015 -- 10:00AM
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. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. 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.
