San Francisco writer and publisher Dave Eggers (pictured left) will be in conversation with San Francisco Chronicle columnist Jon Carroll on February 1 at the Rep.
Eggers’ most recent book, Zeitoun, has made the best seller lists and his new novel, The Wild Things, is just out. The founder of McSweeney’s and co-founder of 826 Valencia — a non-profit writing center for youth — will discuss his journey, both as a writer and an advocate for aspiring writers, to benefit the financial assistance programs at Park Day School in Oakland. Visit the school’s website for ticket information.
Meanwhile, best-selling humorist and NPR personality David Sedaris will spend the week of June 14-20 at the Rep, honing stories from his next book in front of a live audience. Visit the Rep’s website for details.
