50 Women, Book One at Book Passage – July 18

On July 18, Pauline, Nwe and I spoke at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA.

Pauline and Nwe read from their stories in 50 Women, Book One, discussing political and social upheaval in Burma and Cameroon. Pauline discussed her many stories of hardship to elevate herself out of poverty and to educate herself by learning to speak French. Nwe discussed the continuously brewing instability in Burma and her hope for her ethnic group, the Rakhine. Overall, both women stole the show and audience members descended upon them with questions, teary-eyed comments and book signing requests. Below are some photos of the event. The entire album can be found here on the 50 Women Project Flickr page.
