Dave Eggers to discuss "Buccaneers, Robots, Yetis and Other Agents of Social Change" during WSU forum

October 13, 2014


Best-selling author Dave Eggers has written 10 books, edited dozens of others, and founded a literary journal. Yet one of his proudest accomplishments has more to do with the writing of others than his own. Eggers is the founder of 826 National, a network of after-school tutoring centers tucked behind whimsical retail storefronts in places like San Francisco, Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Ann Arbor and Chicago. On Tuesday, Nov. 4, Eggers will be in Detroit to give a talk titled "Buccaneers, Robots, Yetis and Other Agents of Social Change" as a part of the Richard C. Van Dusen Urban Leadership Forum at Wayne State University. The 6 p.m. event will be held at Wayne State's Community Arts Auditorium.
