Yohannes coming to the DC Area: Join Ethiopia Reads for dinner Wednesday, December 17
Wednesday December 17 - 7:00pm
8628 Colesville Road (across the street from the AFI Silver Theater)
Silver Spring, MD 20910
Please join us for an evening with Yohannes Gebregeorgis, founder and executive director of Ethiopia Reads.
Yohannes was recently chosen as one of the Top Ten CNN Heroes for his effort to spread literacy to the children of Ethiopia. Visit http://heroes.cnn.com.
Before he left to embark on such a herculean project, Yohannes worked as children's librarian in San Francisco for nearly two decades. We are Friends of Ethiopia Reads and would like to give him a hero's welcome when he visits the Washington area.
The event will feature some of the very finest Ethiopian food in the DC area and Yohannes as a Guest Speaker.
Suggested Donation: $100.00.
Please RSVP to one of the numbers listed below. We hope to see you there. Please come on time.
