|Author Sandy Goulding delivering her keynote address|
Sandy Goulding, former educator and published novelist, delivered her keynote address at the Kempton Park Library gallery as part of Women’s Month Celebrations today [16 August 2012]. The theme was Empower Women to Read and End Poverty.
Sandy, author of Grief’s Bounty, spoke about the importance of mothers not only reading to young children to prepare them for school, but also how to empower women as life-long learners. Reading, she says, will expand their interests in life, human nature and other cultures. Literature is not only there to entertain us —books are teachers, mentors and life-coaches.
