The Breadwinner, which has sold over 2 million copies worldwide, is the unforgettable story of Parvana, a girl living under Taliban rule who disguises herself as a boy, so she can work to support her family. This presentation is an exciting opportunity to meet and speak with the Governor General Award-winning author, Deborah Ellis. By engaging with the author, the audience will have the opportunity to delve more deeply into her experiences with children living in conflict zones while being inspired and empowered by their courage and resilience.
