Katie Krueger will be reading from her book, Give with Gratitude: Lessons Learned Listening to West Africa, published by her own imprint, Gratice Press. The party celebrates the book’s third printing. According to travel writer Frank Bures:
“Katie Krueger has written a lovely, vivid account of her journey though Senegal. In it, she gets at a question that beguiles many of us who fall in love with Africa: How can so much warmth, laughter and humanity be found in a place where life can be so hard? The answers she found are lessons we could all do well to take to heart, and will affect the reader as deeply as they affected her.”

Tani Diakite & the Malian Blues Band play the best Malian music outside of Mali. All you have to is close your eyes when they play and you are transported to the Sahel and all of its happiness.
