Nobel Peace Prize winner and worldwide education advocate Malala Yousafzai will make a rare appearance at the Target Center this summer.

Yousafzai will speak and take part in a question and answer session on July 26 at 7:30 p.m.

Following an assassination attempt by the Taliban in Pakistan in October 2012, the then 15-year-old Malala was able to not only recover, but become an advocate for education worldwide and has garnered many accolades, like being listed as one of 'The 100 Most Influential People in the World' in 2013 by Time magazine and becoming the youngest recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.

She also released a bestselling book, “I Am Malala,” in 2013 and last fall a documentary about her life, He Named Me Malala, was released.

Tickets go on sale Monday, April 18 at 10 a.m.
