Best-selling author Claire Messud visits Greenwich

March 8, 2018

The Greenwich chapter of Room to Read hosted a January evening with New York Times best-selling author Claire Messud, author of the widely acclaimed The Emperor’s Children, The Woman Upstairs and most recently, The Burning Girl.  Messud is the recipient of Guggenheim and Radcliffe Fellowships and the Strauss Living Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Noted for her unparalleled ability to bring the lives and desires of woman to light, Claire introduced her newest book, The Burning Girl, to the local audience, as part of a wide-ranging discussion on the art of writing and issues relevant to adolescent girls today.

For more on the event, as well as Claire Messud, please follow the links to the two stories which ran in the Greenwich Time:

An evening celebrating the value of girls' education

September 15, 2017

Thank you for all of you who joined us May 9th for an evening with New York Times best-selling author Christina Baker Kline of Orphan Train and A Piece of the World, with a guest appearance by Roshanara, a graduate of Room to Read’s Girls Education Program in India with all proceeds benefit Room to Read.

Roshanara was nearly forced by her family to drop out of school before finishing 10th grade, and enter into an arranged marriage. Through the life skills training and support from her Room to Read “social mobilizer” (mentor) in her hometown of Delhi, Roshanara successfully negotiated with her family and advocated for her future education. Today, she is pursuing her studies at university and is working part-time at a doctor’s clinic to support her siblings’ education.
