The Ivy Bookshop hosts author Mohsin Hamid on March 11th to benefit the IRC in Baltimore

The Ivy Bookshop hosts internationally-acclaimed author Mohsin Hamid in partnership with The Church of the Redeemer to benefit the International Rescue Committee's Baltimore-area refugee rescue and resettlement efforts. 

Hamid's new release, Exit West, tells the timely story of two young lovers struggling to survive as their country explodes into civil war. 

Admission for this event will be $28 per person (or per couple) and includes a copy of the book. Admission will be paid at the door, but additional copies of Exit West will be available for sale before and after the event. Hamid will be available to sign books as guests are exiting the event.

The Ivy will donate 100% of the evening's net book sales to the IRC in Baltimore. 

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 total since opening in 1999.
