Dave Eggers coming to Skidmore

dave eggersAuthor and publisher Dave Eggers will be appearing at Skidmore March 28. The event, which is being described as a conversation, is at the Zankel Center and will be open to the public. We hear tickets will be $12 -- with more details soon.

Eggers first gained fame for his book A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. He's since gone on to become a bit of a hipster icon thanks to a bunch of literary and publishing projects, including the journal McSweeney's. He also wrote the script for the Where the Wild Things Are film adaptation. Here's his TED talk from 2008.

Also coming to Skidmore: NYT restaurant critic Sam Sifton will be giving a lecture March 7. It's open to the public and free.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
