Novelist, screenwriter, founding editor of McSweeneys and overall funny man/smarty pants Dave Eggers has done a lot of impressive things with words. Initially gaining fame from his 2000 novel, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Eggers will be in Portland signing copies of his newest book, A Hologram for the King. He won’t be reading, but you can bask briefly in his staggering genius.
