Ziauddin Yousafzai, father of Nobel Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, educational activist and United Nations Special Advisor on Global Education, reads from his new book.

Join us for an afternoon of music, an author reading and conversation.

Let Her Fly traces the inspirational journey of Malala Yousafzai’s father, Ziauddin, from a boy in Shangla to a man who broke with tradition and proves there are many faces of feminism. Let Her Fly will resonate with anyone who has ever cared for a child, as Ziauddin Yousafzai shares what he’s learned from his children, and what he hopes to teach the world.

Ziauddin Yousafzai is a Pakistani diplomat, educator, educational activist, and human rights campaigner. Best known as the father of Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, he is the co-founder and serves as the Chairman of the Board for the Malala Fund. He also serves as the United Nations Special Advisor on Global Education and as the educational attaché to the Pakistani Consulate in Birmingham, UK.

Musicians Neeraj Prem and Sajan Prem will perform. Books will be available for purchase.

About the library

The first Hamilton Public Library building opened on September 16, 1890 by the Earl and Countess of Aberdeen on the north side of Main Street West. In 1913, a new main library opened. This building was replaced in 1980 by Central Library, at the current location on York Boulevard.

In 2010, Central Library re-opened after approximately 18 months of renovations. Central Library opened with a newly revitalized first floor, which includes a Community Living Room that takes advantage of natural light. The Ontario Library Association honoured Central in 2012 with an Architectural and Design Transformation award.
