Join us for a monthly book club! A new book will be chosen to discuss each month, on the first Friday.

On Friday, August 6, we’ll discuss the book A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea: One Teen Refugee’s Incredible Story of Love, Loss, and Survival by Melissa Fleming.

A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea tells the story of Doaa Al-Zamel, a Syrian girl whose life was upended in 2011 by her country’s brutal civil war. She and her family escape to Egypt, but life soon quickly becomes dangerous for Syrians in that country. Doaa and her fiancé decide to flee to Europe to seek safety and an education, but four days after setting sail on a smuggler’s dilapidated fishing vessel along with five hundred other refugees, their boat is struck and begins to sink…

We’ll meet at R Wine Bar & Kitchen, 322 East 8th Street.
