Catching Dave Eggers's Pitch
Some guy named Dave Eggers was in town recently. We think he's a writer or something.
Literary blog The Elegant Variation has published Katherine Darnell's report of Tuesday's Book Soup event. She enjoyed the show but was a bit dissatisfied with Eggers & Co's hard sell. According to Ms. Darnell, Eggers plans to open an LA-branch of his nonprofit writing center, 826 Valencia, which provides tutoring and writing skills workshops for kids. They're seeking volunteers.
If Eggers et al. do open a tutoring center in LA, we wonder if their version of The Store will become Los Angeles's only independent pirate supply store?
