Dave Eggers is coming to LMU on September 9!

Fall semester is upon us, and we are delighted to welcome Dave Eggers back to LMU. (The last time he was here was as the author of the freshman book, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, back in 2002!)

The entire LMU community is invited to hear Eggers, author of the 2014 LMU Common Book The Circle, speak on Tuesday September 9. The event is free and open to all, even if you haven’t read the book! Please note that seating will be first-come, first-seated, audio or video recording of any kind is prohibited, and we will ask that priority is given to LMU students during the Q&A portion of the event.
