Leymah Roberta Gbowee discussed her memoir at about co-founding the Women of Liberia Mass Action for Peace. The women’s protest movement is credited with being instrumental in ending the Second Liberian Civil War in 2003 and removing Charles Taylor from power. A video clip was shown of a documentary film in which she is featured, Pray the Devil Back to Hell. She discussed her book with the Reverend Gwynne Guibord and responded to questions from members of the audience in the Los Angeles Central Library Mark Taper Auditorium.

This program was a presentation of “ALOUD at Central Library” by the Los Angeles Library Foundation in association with the Los Angeles Public Library. On October 7, 2011, a few days after this event, it was announced that Ms. Gbowee would be one of three women awarded the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10, 2011. close
