Molly Melching "However Long the Night" Lecture in DC
FREE TICKETS AND BOOK PURCHASES ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR TONIGHT BEGINNING AT 6:45 PM. GALA THEATRE, 3333 14TH ST NW. COLUMBIA HEIGHTS METRO OR DISCOUNT PARKING AT GIANT FOOD ON PARK RD NW.

One of the "150 women who shake the world" (Newsweek/Daily Beast), Molly Melching went from being a Midwestern grad student in Senegal in 1974 to supporting the efforts of thousands of West and East African women and girls to end gender inequality and female genital cutting.

Her story and the NGO Tostan's groundbreaking approach to community-led education, revealed in the new book "However Long the Night", are a testament to how true change can start with one woman and spread to millions.

Join us as PBS Newshour correspondent Fred de Sam Lazaro engages Molly in deep, informed conversation about the nature of her work and what it means for all of us called to make a difference with our lives.

Come be inspired by Molly Melching's courageous presence and the successful spreading of Tostan's grassroots approach across Senegal and the six nations that border it.

Says Hillary Clinton of Molly, "[Her] relentless efforts are proof that commitment and partnership can drive transformational change."

Molly Melching is traveling from Dakar, Senegal for this event. However Long the Night is the first book in the HarperOne-Skoll Foundation publishing partnership honoring social entrepreneurship. She will sign copies of the book following the event.

This event is cosponsored by Grace Productions and Politics and Prose Bookstore. Underwriting support is provided by HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Attendance is General Admission. A hardcover copy of However Long the Night is provided with each Book-Ticket Combo purchase and distributed upon entry to the event. Attendees holding Free Tickets will have the opportunity to purchase the book onsite.
