"Hope is like a path in the countryside," wrote Chinese essayist Lu Xun. "Originally there is nothing. But as people walk this way again and again, a path appears."

In Half the Sky, award-winning journalists and husband and wife team Sheryl WuDunn and Nicholas Kristof examined the stories of struggles facing women and girls around the world. Now, in A Path Appears, they focus on poverty -- its complex causes, symptoms and cycles -- and on solutions to this global scourge: innovative strategies for making a difference. Through a mix of research, reporting and extraordinary storytelling, WuDunn and Kristof introduce us to people who are using exceptional ideas and evidence-based approaches to tackle severe problems, inspire hope, and make the world a better place.

Please join us for a special screening and discussion with New York Times columnist and A Path Appears co-author Nicholas Kristof; filmmaker Maro Chermayeff; and New America Senior Fellow and Program Director Georgia Levenson Keohane.

Copies of Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn's A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity will be available for purchase.
