Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen who survived a Taliban assassination attempt and became the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize, was honored Saturday by the JFK Library Foundation. Yousafzai, who is 16 and now lives in England, was shot in the head while returning from school in Pakistan last October. She visited Boston to speak at a forum sponsored by the JFK Library and promote her memoir ‘‘I am Malala.’’ In recognition of her work for the universal right to freedom of education, Yousafzai received a bronze bust of John F.
