World Affairs Council's 14th Annual Essay Contest Celebration Featuring Nancy Pearl
If you were Seattle author and librarian Nancy Pearl and you were writing a new blog post entitled "Books Without Borders," what book would you include? How has this book - with a focus on a world culture or global issue - changed the way you look at the world? Join us on May 30th - nine Washington State students in grades 3 through 12 will be saluted for their award-winning writing on this topic at the World Affairs Council's 14th Annual Essay Contest Celebration.

The World Affairs Council is thrilled to have Nancy Pearl as our keynote speaker for this celebratory event. Not only will she discuss some of her favorite "arm-chair" travel books, she will also "take" us to Bosnia-Herzegovina. Nancy, who developed "If All Seattle Read the Same Book," has recently returned from the Balkans where she helped launched "One Bosnia and Herzegovina, One Book" (which was sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in Sarajevo).  Come hear how Sherman Alexie's The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian landed in the laps of teachers, librarians, and students in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, and Tuzla -  and how the readers of all ethnicities, ages, religions, and genders related to this book and related to one another through discussing this book.

So you think Nancy Pearl just curls up at home with books? Uncurl yourself tonight and find out what Nancy does when she is not reading!  And join the World Affairs Council as we celebrate Puget Sound student readers and writers.

Space is limited to the first 110 registrations.
