The Little Coffee Shop of Kabul (originally published as A Cup of Friendship) by Deborah Rodriguez.
With the influx of thousands of Afghan refugees into this country, it seems important to understand something of the culture from which they come and the issues they faced there. In a departure from the usual true stories we have used in Reading That Matters discussions, this novel is a look into the everyday culture in the city of Kabul, Afghanistan, and centers around an American ex-pat and the people she gets to know at her coffee shop. The author, who wrote this book about 10 years ago, also ran a coffee shop in Kabul for several years and based the story on her experiences there. She wrote the book as a novel rather than a memoir so that she could include more examples of the people and real issues she met in Kabul, as well as a desire to protect the people she knew there.

$6 per discussion, does not include the book. Register by the Monday before each discussion.
