Weston Public Library Non Fiction Book Discussion Group. "The Monk of Mokha" by Dave Eggers

Thursday, June 10, 2021

Join us in a virtual discussion of "The Monk of Mohka" by Dave Eggers. Copies are available at the Circulation Desk or digitally at A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “A gripping, triumphant adventure” (Los Angeles Times) from bestselling author Dave Eggers. Mokhtar Alkhanshali is twenty-four and working as a doorman when he discovers the astonishing history of coffee and Yemen’s central place in it. He leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms high in the country’s rugged mountains and meet beleaguered but determined farmers. But when war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down, Mokhtar has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his people.
