NEW YORK (AP) — A Pakistani teenager shot by the Taliban for promoting education for girls will be in New York City to speak about her experiences and her memoir.
Malala Yousafzai (mah-LAH'-lah YOO'-suhf-zeye) and her father, a human rights activist who founded an all-girls school, will be interviewed by CNN correspondent Christiane Amanpour at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan on Thursday night.
The Nobel Peace Prize contender was shot in the head in October last year by a Taliban gunman in an assassination attempt that drew attention worldwide to the struggle for women's rights in her homeland.
She chronicles the attack and its aftermath in her book, "I Am Malala."
The European Parliament announced Thursday that Malala won the $65,000 Sakharov Award, Europe's top human rights award.
