Anonymous said: Have you met Dave Eggers? It would be great to have him visit New Paltz. Years ago, I happened upon him reading at a Seattle bookstore on UDub, just a few blocks from the U.of Washington campus. Lots of fun to be there, just by chance, as though that's possible .
No! I have been to his tutoring center/Superhero Supply store here in Brooklyn before, but the closest I came to ever meeting him was being in a very large convention center room with him once in Kansas City while we (and 30 other authors) were both signing copies of books. But I’m an admirer of his writing, as well as what he’s done to help bring writing to underserved communities. He did this great Ted Talk about his Tutoring Centers, if you’re interested! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCGOyvq7x1Y
