Malala Yousafzai To Publish Her Memoir

Pakistani writer Malala Yousafzai will publish her memoir with Little, Brown. I Am Malala will come out this fall. Here’s more about the book:

On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, a fifteen-year-old Pakistani girl was shot in the face at point-blank range because she had the temerity to stand up to the Taliban. That girl, Malala Yousafzai, survived the brutal attack, and the shocking story made headlines around the world … She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, the youngest person ever to be singled out in that way … In her memoir she will finally tell, in her own words, what happened on that day and the moving and inspiring story of her determination not be intimidated by extremists. It will also be about the family who gave Malala her remarkable courage.

You can learn more about her remarkable life in the 30-minute New York Times documentary embedded above. Karolina Sutton at Curtis Brown and Amanda Urban at ICM Partners represented the young author. Editor-in-chief Judy Clain acquired the book.

The Pakistani teenager concluded in the release: “I want to tell my story, but it will also be the story 61 million children who can’t get education.”
