Book Reading Tonight by Neighborhood Author

Local author Anna El-Eini will read from her book, Breaking Heart tomorrow evening at Past Tense yoga studio here in Mount Pleasant.  Ms. El-Eini has worked side by side with residents, organizing, right here in DC and saw first hand the struggles that helped inform the book. The reading is free. 

Breaking Heart is described as contemporary fiction depicting the trails of a young community organizer facing a monumental challenge to save a neighborhood just minutes form the marble monuments that visitors consider the real DC. As you and I know there is so much more to this city! The book explores political will, public policy, neighborhood power struggles and all the dynamics that sometimes play in your favor, and other times, leave you looking for a little help, please!

The reading will take place after the Happy Hour yoga session (6:30-7:30pm). Actually, it will start closer to 8:00pm. The reading is free and you don't have to attend the Happy Hour yoga session, just show up at Past Tense before 8. Past Tense is located at 3253 Mt. Pleasant St. NW. 

Have a great weekend!
