#BookFace and Women’s History, it doesn’t get much better than that!
#BookFaceFriday this week is definitely a double threat as a part of both our “Who Runs the World?: Women’s History” collection on Nebraska OverDrive Libraries and in our NLC Book Club Kit collection! “I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World” (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2016) is an Audiobook available to all Nebraska OverDrive Libraries! Explore this title and the 142 in the collection as you celebrate Women’s History Month! 173 libraries across the state share this collection of 12,407 audiobooks and 24,143 eBooks, with new titles added weekly. If you’re a part of it, let your users know about this brand new title, and if you’re not a member yet, find more information about participating in Nebraska Overdrive Libraries! As a part of our NLC Book Club Kit collection, this memoir by the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize is a great way to round out your book club reads!
“Although her efforts to attend school, and the subsequent attack she endured, make for a powerful story, Yousafzai writes just as vividly about her daily life as a child in Pakistan…. Yousafzai’s fresh, straightforward voice creates an easily read narrative that will introduce a slew of younger readers to both her story and her mission.”―Booklist
This week’s #BookFaceFriday model is NLC’s Talking Book & Braille Service Library Readers Advisor, Anna Walter!
