About the Event
Please join acclaimed debut author Stephen Dau for a special Book of Jonas Dinner Adventure to benefit the International Rescue Committee in their work responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helping people to survive and rebuild their lives.
Ladies, Lunch & Literacy is a program that invites select debut authors to lunch (or dinner) in a personalized setting. The program emphasizes meeting other readers and building a community that loves to learn about, and talk about new books, receiving a signed first edition from a promising new writer and creating buzz and book group interest for a debut author, and supporting a non-profit organization with part of the event proceeds.
About the Book
Jonas is 15 when his family is killed during an errant U.S. military operation in an unnamed Muslim country. With the help of an international rescue organization, he is sent to the U.S., where he struggles to assimilate. Told in spare, evocative prose, The Book of Jonas is about memory, the terrible choices made during war, and what happens when foreign disaster appears at our own doorstep. It is a rare and virtuosic novel from an exciting new writer to watch.
