Uma Mishra, a Richmond resident, social justice and women’s rights leader, speaker, and coauthor of the children’s book, Loujain Dreams of Sunflowers, is coming to the Richmond Public Library for a book event on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

The event will take place at 3:30 p.m. in the Madeline Whittlesey Room at the Richmond Main Public Library at 325 Civic Center Plaza.

Mishra will read and discuss Loujain Dreams of Sunflowers, a moving story about a little girl who dreams of flying. The book was inspired by the work of formerly imprisoned human rights activist Loujain AlHathloul.
