We’re so excited to announce an upcoming FREE event for our YWCA Utah Members during Women’s History Month. Exploring Our Origin Stories: A Reading and Discussion with Sahar Mustafah on March 25 at 6 PM will feature a reading and discussion, including the opportunity to have audience questions. While reading Sahar’s latest book The Beauty of Your Face is not required, we strongly encourage it. We have 40 copies of the book available at the YWCA, first come first serve, for our members for FREE. This is the UK edition of the book, so the cover is not the same as depicted in promotional materials.
Registering for the event is easy! If you are a current YWCA Utah Member you should have received an email with your special access code for registration. Not a member yet? Become one today!
In an effort to foster productive, quality discussion, space is limited to so don’t hesitate to register today! Your confirmation email will contain the Zoom link as well as instructions to receive your FREE copy of the book, while supplies last.
