Goodreads Podcast: Elizabeth Talks with Author Dave Eggers

Posted by Cybil on March 16, 2019

In the latest edition of the Books of Your Life with Elizabeth podcast, Goodreads Co-Founder Elizabeth Khuri Chandler talks with author, publisher, and philanthropist Dave Eggers.

The author of beloved books including A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and The Circle is back on the bookshelves this spring with The Parade, a tale of two Western contractors working far from home in a dangerous and largely lawless country.

Eggers is also the founder of the literary journal McSweeney's, a co-founder of the literacy nonprofit organization 826 National and the human rights nonprofit Voice of Witness, as well as the founder of ScholarMatch, a program that matches donors with students needing funds for college tuition.

Chandler and Eggers discussed his new book, as well as the books that changed his life, which include Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy, Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift, It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis, and the Voice of Witness series, which he edited.
