Immigrant Narratives: The Beautiful Things That Heaven Bears

Thursday, April 21 • 6:30pm

Behind every migration, there is a story. In Dinaw Mengestu’s award-winning novel, he tells the powerful story of Sepha Stephanos, an Ethiopian immigrant living in Washington, D.C. after fleeing his country’s revolution seventeen years earlier. Join us for a discussion about the book’s theme of migration.
