Dave Eggers Visits the Windy City

Author and notable force behind the literary conglomerate McSweeney's and 826 writing and tutoring centers, Dave Eggers is coming to the Chicago this Saturday, February 2, for three events! Drop by the Book Cellar, at 4736 N. Lincoln Ave., from 10am to noon, or Unabridged Bookstore, at 3251 N. Broadway Ave., at 2pm for in-store signings. The events are free, but get there early as the stores will likely fill up.

You then have one last chance of catching Eggers as he visits the Latin School of Chicago, located at 59 W. North Ave., in the Wrigley Theater at 5:30pm. This is the culminating event of the school's annual week long lit fest. Eggers will be reading from his latest book A Hologram for the King followed by a discussion about his writing by Latin School English teacher Frank Tempone. RSVPs are required as space is limited. There is a $10 donation which will benefit 826CHI.
