Ghirmay Neghasi, a Eritrean refugee and Iris Sandkuhler, a German immigrant connected over coffee while working together as baristas at a Marin County Starbucks. Captivated by Ghirmay's personal journey through several countries from Eritrea to the US, Iris was inspired to put these stories on paper by publishing her novel titled, The River is the Border. Come join us on April 7th, where you'll have the opportunity to meet both Ghirmay and Iris, learn more about their backgrounds and take their novel home with you!
Admission includes a copy of their book as well as coffee, tea & pastries provided by 1951 Coffee.
