New Anthology, Arrows of Light, Launch Celebration, Readings and Discussion

Join us for a celebration of our latest book published under the IWWG Press Imprint. Arrows of Light features original stories written by Afghan women writers, some still in Afghanistan and many who emigrated after the U.S. exit and the return of Taliban rule. These women's voices are so important right now as they start over in new countries, often having to leave their professional work and other family behind. For those still in country, their words carry even greater importance. The anthology features original photography and also original art loaned to the IWWG for publication by the Peace Pen Art, Peace Gallery Exhibition, where women artists captured their artistic interpretation of what peace might mean.

Editor Pamela D. Varkony will lead the discussion and introduce excerpts from the anthology read by contributors.  

Your support of these women through attending the event and through the purchase of the book expresses the solidarity that is a core value of the IWWG.

Pamela Varkony is a dynamic speaker who has inspired audiences from America to Australia to Afghanistan through her passion for improving the lives of others. Her insights on life, leadership, politics, and the human condition are read and heard across four continents. Considered to be a thought-leader in women’s empowerment, Pam speaks and trains frequently on the subjects of leadership, gender diversity, and their impact on corporate cultures and government policies. In 2017 she was named a Pearl S. Buck International Woman of Influence.  From 2012 to 2014 she served as a gubernatorial appointee to the Pennsylvania State Commission for Women.
