I’m so glad to have had a hand in this beautiful publication. The poems are wonderful and the cause even more so: supporting Malala Yousafzai‘s efforts to make education available to girls everywhere. Here’s the publisher’s description:
On the one-year anniversary of 15-year-old Malala Yousafzai’s shooting by the Taliban for speaking out for the right of girls to an education, FutureCycle Press publishes Malala: Poems for Malala Yousafzai in her honor. Edited by poets Joseph Hutchison and Andrea L. Watson, men and women all over the world contributed work to this anthology as part of a global outpouring of support for Malala. FutureCycle Press will donate all proceeds from sale of the paperback and Kindle editions to the Malala Fund. To help raise awareness of her cause, a PDF version is also available on the press website for free download and sharing.
Let me remind everyone that this collection makes a fantastic holiday gift. You can share fine poetry, raise awareness about a great cause, and support that cause with each copy of Malala you give.
We fret about a lack of role models for children, but Malala is just such a role model—so consider buying and donating a copy to your local public library or school libraries in your area. Your purchase will raise money for the Malala Fund in the short term and in the long run help children learn how young people like them can face the world’s problems with courage and commitment.
And now—two more days of suspense waiting to see whether Malala wins the Nobel Peace Prize!
