    Stronger Than Death: Rachel Pieh Jones in St. Paul

    Afro Deli, 5 West 7th Place. ⁄ St Paul, Minnesota


    Amid a volatile mix of disease, war, and religious fundamentalism in the Horn of Africa, what difference could one woman make? In Stronger Than Death: How Annalena Tonelli Defied Terror and Tuberculosis in the Horn of Africa, Rachel Pieh Jones details the story of a woman whose larger-than-life example challenges our assumptions about aid and development, Christian–Muslim relations, and what it means to put one’s faith into practice. Brought vividly back to life through Jones’s meticulous reporting and her own letters, Annalena Tonelli presents us with a new measure of success and commitment.

    What’s happening at the Book Launch Party? Q & A time, signed books for sale, fun door prizes, and great food prepared by Afro Deli. Get ready to explore an amazing menu. Rachel says, "I would describe the taste as Djiboutiliciousness, because the owner is Djiboutian! We have changed places: me, the Minnesotan in Djibouti and him, the Djiboutian in Minnesota." Come on out and enjoy a night of good food, friends, and celebration. Books will be sold through Maegers and Quinn bookstore.
