Dave Eggers and Mokhtar Alkhanshali: Good to the Last Drop
The Monk of Mokha, Dave Eggers’ latest book, follows the inspiring story of Mokhtar Alkhanshali, a Yemeni American whose dream to revitalize Yemen’s once-thriving coffee industry clashes with the realities of operating in a country engulfed by civil war. In a conversation on immigration and human rights, Dave and Mokhtar discussed how this powerful story came to life.

Kudos to @jeremycyoung, @jonfreadom, @JeffreyASachs and others at @PENamerica for their ESSENTIAL work on *educational gag orders.* Everyone who cares about public education should read their new report--
Moscow-controlled Supreme Court in Crimea has shortened the prison term of journalist Vladyslav Yesypenko by one year to 5 years.
Yesypenko—the 2022 PEN/Barbey Freedom to Write Award honoree—was detained in Russian-occupied Crimea on March 10, 2021.
“The event will be live streamed, and PEN America is asking those unable to attend to show their support by hosting a public reading of Rushdie’s work in their own community.”
