A Girl With A Book
Can a Guardian reader really be prejudiced?
It’s October 2012. Gunmen stop a bus in Pakistan and shoot three girls. For wanting to go to school. How can the writer respond?
Knowing nothing about the situation, able to offer little more than outrage he’s forced to come out from behind his desk and go into the community searching for answers to help him tell the story of a brave young woman’s fight for girls’ education.
When his research uncovers attitudes at odds with his liberal convictions he also has to deal with what he learns about himself.
