Dave Eggers sure does get around, and tonight the mind-blowing globe-trotter will be joined by Mokhtar Alkhanshali to talk about Eggers' newest book, The Monk of Mokha ($29, Knopf). It's the fantastic yet truthful story of Alkhanshali, a young Yemeni guy who grew up in San Francisco and fell in love with the culture around making coffee. He loves it so much that he goes back home to reignite Yemen's ancient art of coffee-making and — of course! — war breaks out. Find out what happens next when Eggers and Alkhanshali lift their cups to the power of the over-caffeinated human spirit.
