Coffee and Conversation: The Monk Of Mohka

One of our favorite things here at Global Gallery is coffee and the other is books! So we are hosting a book club meet up! All are welcome to join and participate, we will be meeting in person to discuss the book at the coffee shop and enjoy some delicious Fair Trade coffee. 

The first book we chose is: The Monk Of Mokha by 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 beleagured 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." 

We will be posting different questions, items and topics here as we all read the book to keep us all on track
