Elena Favilli reads from Dr. Wangari Maathai Plants a Forest

Following the advice of British authorities on the Coronavirus we are sorry to announce that, in agreement with SIAL school, the event with Elena Favilli has been cancelled. 

Rebel Girls' co-founder and author, Elena Favilli, as she reads from Rebel Girls’ newest book on environmentalist and Nobel Prize winner, Wangari Maathai. Dr. Wangari Maathai Plants a Forest tells the story of Wangari’s journey from a young girl in Kenya, to a celebrated activist, and leader of one of the largest worldwide tree planting efforts.

Following the reading, attendees will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A with Elena, and have their books signed.

Event for children 8 to 12 years old. Parents are welcome to attend with their children. 
The event is organised in partnershipwith Timbuktu Labs Inc. and SIAL School – the only Italian-English bilingual and bi-curricular school in the UK – and takes place at the SIAL School, 154-156 Holland Park Ave, Notting Hill, London W11 4UH.

Elena Favilli is the co-founder and CEO of Rebel Girls, the cultural media engine working to empower girls and women all over the world. She has worked for Colors Magazine, McSweeney's, RAI, Il Post, and La Repubblica, and managed digital newsrooms on both sides of the Atlantic. She holds a masters degree in semiotics from the University of Bologna and she studied digital journalism at UC Berkeley. She worked as a journalist in Milan, where she co-created Timbuktu Magazine, the first ever iPad magazine for children. After Timbuktu Magazine was picked up by 500 Startups in 2012, Elena chased its success to build a company in California. In 2015, testing out a new idea to provide even greater access to female role models, Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls was born and went on to become the most crowdfunded book initiative in history. Elena continues to spearhead Rebel Girls, as it dives into new mission-driven initiatives and projects. She lives in Los Angeles with her dog Lafayette, a Bracco Italiano.
