DAVE EGGERS - SIGNING
Peninsula Arts & Letters and Kepler's present Dave Eggers

Saturday, April 26th
3:00pm

Kepler's Books
1010 El Camino Real
Menlo Park, CA 94025

We are thrilled to announce that Dave Eggers is stopping by Kepler's on Saturday, April 26, at 3pm, to sign books. We're celebrating the paperback release of his most recent novel, "The Circle", which will be available next week.  

In 2000, Eggers published "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius", his memoir of his parents' deaths and his struggle to raise his younger brother. Chosen as a Pulitzer Prize finalist for Nonfiction, it became an instant bestseller.

Eggers has written a number of other bestsellers including "What is the What", the fictionalized autobiography of a Sudanese Lost Boy which was a finalist for the 2006 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction; "A Hologram for the King", a finalist for the 2012 National Book Award; and "Zeitoun", winner of the American Book Award and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, a nonfiction that follows the experiences of a Syrian-American in New Orleans during the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.


In Dave Eggers' latest novel,  "The Circle",  Big Brother isn't the government as it was in Orwell's "1984": "it's a Google-like, Facebook-like tech behemoth, called the Circle, that has a billion-odd users, controls 90% of the world's searches and aspires to record and quantify everything that's happening to everybody, everywhere in the world."

In addition to his writing, Eggers is also a publishing entrepreneur and activist. He is the founder of the independent publisher McSweeney's and the literary magazine "The Believer", edited by his wife, Vendela Vida. In 2002, he co-founded the 826 Valencia project, a writing workshop for teens in San Francisco's Mission District that has since evolved into 826 National, with writing workshops springing up around the country.

The paperback version of "The Circle" will be available for purchase and/or pickup at Kepler's after 4/22.
