Book Reading – Natwar Gandhi for Still the Promised Land

September 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm UTC+0


Still the Promised Land is the fascinating and deeply personal story one man’s perseverance and how he achieved the American Dream. Author Natwar Gandhi was an impoverished immigrant who made his way to the New World, where he recreated his life and ultimately became the chief financial officer of Washington, DC, where he played a key role in transforming the nation’s capital from a near-bankrupt municipality into a financially healthy major American city. His story of hard work, determination, and resilience is at once the portrait of an extraordinary individual and a testament to the potency of another great survivor: the American dream itself.

This event is free and seating is first come, first served. Books will be available for purchase in the bookstore and full menu and bar will be offered during the event.
