LMU Common Book author Dave Eggers returned to LMU on September 9 (his first visit since 2002) and spent a full day engaging with hundreds of LMU students through book signings, his talk in Gersten Pavilion, and two smaller classroom experiences. It was an unforgettable day for everyone involved, including Dave Eggers himself.
The 2014 Common Book experience was captured in a variety of ways through press and social media. Whether you were there, or are curious about what you missed, check it out:
