Few tales capture the spirit of the American Dream with the unabashed enthusiasm of Mawi Asgedom's inspiring memoir, Of Beetles and Angels. The book guides us through Mawi's remarkable journey: from civil war in east Africa, through a refugee amp in Sudan, to a childhood on welfare in an affluent American suburb, and eventually , to a full-tuition scholarship at Harvard University. At every step- whether learning a new language, overcoming racial discrimination or succeeding despite personal tragedy- Mawi forges ahead with unshakable optimism and devotion to his family.
