Sarina Prabasi with Paul Cohen - The Coffeehouse Resistance

Brewing Hope in Desperate Times, a Business Memoir Book Talk & Signing

Sarina Prabasi is a seasoned leader in international development--working on global health, education, water and sanitation for over 25 years. In 2011, she moved from Addis Ababa to New York City and started Buunni Coffee with her husband. Their small business has become a hub for community conversation and action. She will discuss and sign The Coffeehouse Resistance: Brewing Hope in Desperate Times ($19.95 Green Writers Press). 

Part coming-to-America story, part lyrical memoir, and yet another part activist’s call to action, The Coffeehouse Resistance: Brewing Hope in Desperate Times is timely, funny, and poignant. Writing as a mother, immigrant, new American, coffeehouse owner, and international nonprofit leader, Prabasi’s story weaves between Nepal, Ethiopia, and the United States. Moving from despair to hope, this story is ultimately about building community, claiming home, and fighting for our dreams. Prabasi will be joined by Paul Cohen, author of The Glamshack.
