HALF THE SKY: An evening with New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof

Half the Sky by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. (Knopf, 2009)

'Women hold up half the sky''Chinese proverb With Pulitzer Prize winners Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn as our guides, we undertake a journey through Africa and Asia to meet an extraordinary array of women struggling under profoundly dire circumstances'and an equally extraordinary group that have triumphed. Through their stories, Kristof and WuDunn help us see that the key to progress in our world lies in unleashing women's potential'and they make clear how each of us can help make that happen. Fiercely moral, pragmatic, and inspirational, Half the Sky is essential reading for every global citizen. Kristof will present an evening of reading from this poignant new book. Each attendant will received an autographed book. Co-Presented with Brazos Bookstore and the World Affairs Council, Houston
