dave eggers

Acclaimed author Dave Eggers will be joined on the ALOUD stage by the fascinating subject of his newest book. The Monk of Mokha is the true story of Mokhtar Alkhanshali, an ambitious young Muslim man who was raised in the coffee-loving city of San Francisco and became fascinated by the rich history of coffee. When he travels to his ancestral home of Yemen with the hopes of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee, he’s on the brink of success just as the country becomes engulfed in civil war. Join us for a special blend of storytelling as Eggers discusses this heart-pounding work that weaves together biography, a history of the hot commodity of coffee, global conflict, and the high stakes of chasing the American dream.
