What is the What? Indeed

Last night I got to see one of my favorite authors and do-gooders, Dave Eggers, up close.

He was giving a talk at Eckerd College as part of their Plight & Promise of Africa series.

Eggers' book What is the What tells the story of Valentino Achak Deng, one of Sudan's Lost Boys. Deng was not in attendance due to a family emergency, and his friend Gabriel was kind enough to share his story.

Next week I'll have the story on WMNF. Stay tuned.
