Dave Eggers, a Ten Evenings Author

Uploaded by pghlectures
Bestselling author Dave Eggers and Yemeni-American Mokhtar Alkhanshali take the stage at the Carnegie Music Hall for the Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures series. They will discuss Eggers’ book The Monk of Mokha, the true story of Alkhanshali’s life as a 24-year-old college dropout in San Francisco who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee. The book delves into Alkhanshali’s journey to his family’s ancestral homeland, where he braves an active war zone to bring a suitcase full of unroasted coffee back to the U.S.
