With rich descriptions of Malawi, Weaving a Malawi Sunrise allows readers a glimpse into the country’s challenges and celebrations, particularly related to the development of a school for young women. The book focuses on the stories of Memory and Christie and the students they engage with, as it weaves a tale of educational success despite rural barriers in one of the world’s poorest countries. Given the overarching narrative, this work would best be used for a novel study or to start discussions around how experiences for girls differ globally. It could also be used to inspire lessons about community-engaged activism, and may appeal to readers with a budding interest in women’s rights.
