Dave Eggers & Mokhtar Alkhanshali

Friday, January, 11, 7:30 p.m.

In partnership with World Affairs Council of Dallas/Fort Worth

Bestselling author Dave Eggers delivers a “gripping, triumphant adventure” (Los Angeles Times) with The Monk of Mokha, the incredible true story of Mokhtar Alkhanshali, a young Yemeni American man, raised in San Francisco, who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee. Mokhtar leaves San Francisco and travels deep into his ancestral homeland to tour terraced farms and meet beleaguered but determined farmers. When war engulfs the country and Saudi bombs rain down, Alkhanshali has to find a way out of Yemen without sacrificing his dreams or abandoning his people. Dave Eggers is the author of The Circle, Heroes of the Frontier, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius (Pulitzer Prize finalist), and What Is the What (National Book Critics Circle Award finalist).

Brad Meltzer

Tuesday, January 15, 7:30 p.m.

In The First Conspiracy: The Secret Plot Against George Washington and the Birth of American Counterintelligence, author Brad Meltzer brings to light the story of the secret, deadly plot to assassinate the first President of the United States during the tumultuous days leading up to July 4, 1776. The book not only reveals how hard the battle was for the first commander-in-chief and how close America was to losing the Revolutionary War, but also illuminates the origins of America’s counterintelligence movement, which led to the modern CIA. Former President George H. W. Bush calls it “a wonderful book about leadership and it shows why George Washington and his moral lessons are just as vital today.”

A Moveable Feast Book Club: Lauren Groff's "Fates and Furies"

Thursday, January 17, 11:45 a.m. -1:00 p.m.

Join fellow bibliophiles for lunch in the DMA’s Founders Room as you enjoy thoughtful dialogue about Lauren Groff’s award-winning novel Fates and Furies. Library Journal “highly recommends” Groff’s complex depiction of marriage, creativity, and power, saying, “Like a classic tragedy, Groff’s novel offers high drama, hubris, and epic love, complete with Greek chorus–like asides. A singular and compelling literary read, populated with extraordinary characters.” Dr. Jaina Sanga, author, literary scholar, and Fellow of the Dallas Institute of Humanities, will facilitate the conversation and lead the group discussion.
