Description

Join IAS Professors Diane and Mike Gillespie for a discussion of the book, However Long the Night: Molly Melching’s Journey to Help Millions of African Women and Girls Triumph, by Aimee Molloy.  However Long the Night chronicles the work of Diane Gillespie’s sister, Molly Melching, founder of the Senegalese community development organization, Tostan.  Molloy’s account details Melching's beginnings at the University of Dakar and follows her journey of 40 years in Africa, where she became a social entrepreneur and voice for the rights of girls and women.

From Melinda Gates to Hillary Clinton, readers have been moved by the ways that Melching's journey allows them to think about their own efforts to care for others and to advocate for democracy, human rights, and dignity. How do we persist in the face of adversity, create the conditions for meaningful exchanges, and work from the strengths that exist in all communities?

All are welcome!  REGISTER here >>

Reserve the book at King County Library System, The Seattle Public Library, Sno-Isle Libraries, or UW Libraries. IAS also has several copies for loan.  Please email iasalum@uw.edu to request a copy.
