Google+ Book Club this Monday with @shesthefirst!

I have the privilege and blessing of volunteering with an organization called She’s the First based here in NYC. They’re working to sponsor girls’ education so they can be the ‘first’ in their community to graduate. When girls are empowered with an education it’s amazing what they can do for their families, their communities and our world.

We’ll be discussing just that and then some on Monday, Nov. 14, at 7 pm via Google+. In case you’ve never been part of a G+ meetup (I hadn’t until our last book discussion!) you join via video conferencing and there can be up to 10 participants. Just add She’s the First on Google+ here, and let me know you’ll be attending. Then just sign in to G+ at 7 pm, and once the meetup has begun it will appear in your stream on the right-hand side. Easy breezy. 😉

We’re discussing “Half the Sky” by Nicholas Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn–a book I have heard lots about in the past but just now reading and very excited to discuss. The authors have traveled the world chronicling stories of women and girls across the globe with a huge amount of hope to share: Unlocking the power of women could be our biggest chance in the fight against poverty.

I hope you join us! -EL
