Mohsin Hamid: Exit West

The Ivy Bookshop and The Church of the Redeemer

The Ivy Bookshop is partnering with the Church of the Redeemer to sponsor a fundraising event in suport of the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and its rescue and resettlement efforts.  This event will feature internationally renowned author Mohsin Hamid.  Hamid is the author of Moth SmokeThe Reluctant Fundamentalist (a Man Booker prize finalist), How to Get Filthy Rich in Rising Asia, Discontent and Its Civilizations and—coming in March—Exit West.  This new novel is the story of two young lovers in an unnamed country, struggling to survive as their world explodes into civil war.

The IRC in Baltimore is the largest refugee resettlement agency in Maryland, settling over 1,200 new refugees and other humanitarian migrants annually, and more than 10,000 since opening in 1999. Through its vast network of community partners, the IRC in Baltimore provides for refugees’ healthcare, educational, financial, housing and school-related needs. The IRC in Baltimore’s primary goal is to provide newly-arrived refugees with the tools and opportunities they need to thrive in their new communities.

The Ivy will donate 100% of net book sales from this event to the Baltimore office of the (IRC), an organization at the forefront of the struggle to rescue families at risk.

Tickets for this event will be available at the door for $28 per person or per couple, which includes a copy of Exit West  Mohsin Hamid will be available to sign books at the event.
