Book Club & RPCV Getogether

11/19/13 Tue (7:00 PM - 8:00 PM)
Cafe Tibet
2020 University Avenue, Berkeley
Contact:Jayma Brown (jaymaghana@earthlink.net)


Join us for a Book discussion of From the Center of the Earth, a series of short stories edited by Geraldine Kennedy and some Tibetan food at Cafe Tibet. As usual, you don't have to have read the book, you can come and discuss your own "Peace Corps" story, and/or enjoy the company of other RPCVs. Please RSVP to Jayma at jaymaghana@earthlink.net so I can make reservations at the restaurant and know how many people to expect.

Here is a bit about the book: After more than 45 years and more than 200,000 volunteers, the Peace Corps, as an expression of America's abiding hope and idealism, is firmly established in the national consciousness. Peace Corps writers are producing a rich body of literature illuminating the Third World in which they lived. We are proud to bring them together for the first time in this widely acclaimed anthology. Includes stories set in Kenya, the Caribbean, South Korea, Togo, Nepal, Zaire, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, and Ecuador.

About the restaurant, if you haven't tried Tibetan food, this is your chance. Check out their menu at http://www.cafetibetberkeley.com/
