Egg on Dave Eggers Next Tuesday at 826CHI

Next Tuesday, May 20, Dave Eggers will be in town for a book signing at 826CHI's The Boring Store, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave. Eggers is not only an award award-winning author, notably for his best-selling memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, but also a co-founder of the 826 organizations (there are eight across the country).

He will be signing books which will also be on sale at the Boring Store. The event begins at 6:30pm and is free and open to the public. And don't forget to check out how to become involved with 826CHI, a nonprofit dedicated to assisting students ages 6-18 to work on their creative writing skills.
