book cover artJoin the Young Prose Book Meetup for a discussion of The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears by Dinaw Mengestu, a DC Reads 2014 selection.

Seventeen years ago, Sepha Stephanos fled the Ethiopian Revolution for a new start in the United States. Now he finds himself running a failing grocery store in a poor African-American section of Washington, D.C., his only companions two fellow African immigrants who share his bitter nostalgia and longing for his home continent. Years ago and worlds away Sepha could never have imagined a life of such isolation. As his environment begins to change, hope comes in the form of a friendship with new neighbors Judith and Naomi, a white woman and her biracial daughter. But when a series of racial incidents disturbs the community, Sepha may lose everything all over again

DC Reads is a DC Public Library literacy program that promotes reading for pleasure by having citywide celebrations for teens and adults that focus on one book. Each year a new book is selected by a public voting process, with thousands of votes cast at libraries and bookstores around the city.

The Young Prose Book Meetup is a casual and friendly book Meetup for young professionals in DC between the ages of 21 and 35, but no one is ever turned away, who like discussing books and drinking beer! We usually meet on the last Wednesday evening of each month at Kitty O'Sheas DC in Tenleytown. Please RSVP to victor.benitez@dc.gov or visit http://www.meetup.com/youngprose.
