Upcoming FAWCO Events

September 8, 19:00 – Global Issues Book Discussion Series
The next book in the Global Issues Book Discussion Series is the Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by William Kamkwamba. The book showcases the importance of education and literacy as well as libraries. William tells the story of how he studied books in the school library and then cobbled together from spare items an electrical system for his home and then a windmill to pump water. The book was also chosen because of its discussion of environmental issues, including a devastating drought in Malawi. Register online.

September 14, 18:00 – Menopause & You 
Night sweats, unwanted weight gain, mood swings, brain fog, anxiety, as well as about 514 other symptoms. Are you asking yourself if you just have to get on with it and endure it on your own? Are you finding it hard to cope? Are you one of the millions of women who every day need a little support to understand what is happening to your body?

Does this sound familiar to you? Then please join us in a talk with Jessika Luther, nurse, midwife and menopause coach. We will be discussing how we can find renewed energy, ourselves again, and see menopause as the change it is - mid-life can be marvelous! Jessika is soon 60 years old, Finnish, and an eternal student who thinks women deserve to feel good in their own bodies and mind and find their own strengths without feeling stressed out while doing it.

November 8, 19:00 – Global Issues Book Discussion Series
Please join us as we welcome the Author Silvia Vasquez-Lavado to discuss her book In the Shadow of the Mountain. A unique opportunity to meet the author and hear more about her inspiring and amazing memoir. Silvia Vasquez-Lavado is a Peruvian-American who conquered the Seven Summits that mountaineers strive to achieve. Truly remarkable about her achievement is how her courage took her from a sexually abused child in Lima, to the heights of a Silicon Valley career and finally to the top of the world with feats of physical and mental strength. Silvia's achievements are inspiring for all who fear they can not overcome. Her achievements are long, her courage is endless and her compassion is inspiring.
