If you recall, the Petworth Book Club had a lively discussion about Mengestu's first novel, The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears, a few months ago. Don't miss this opportunity to hear Mengestu read!
How to Read the Air tells the story of Jonas, the son of Ethiopian immigrants, who retraces his mother and
father's trip and weaves together a family history that takes him
from the war-torn Ethiopia of his parents' youth to his life in present day America.
