January 27, Tuesday afternoon -- Reading David Eggers

On the BART platform
Reading You Shall Know Our Velocity, by David Eggers, a local author and founder of the Pirate Store, where, not only can you buy eye patches, treasure maps and lard, but also get tutored in writing, even if you're not suffering from scurvy...though, unless you happen upon one of their fantastic adult workshops -- I went to one for creative non-fiction where author of Stiff, Mary Roach sat on a panel -- you have to be a student aged 6 - 18.

Her favorite book -- Jane Eyre, by Charlotte Brontë.
