Dave Eggers will present the keynote public talk of the 2019 Granfalloon festival.
Eggers is the author of many books, including The Parade, The Circle, The Monk of Mokha, What is the What, A Hologram for the King, and The Lifters. He is founder of McSweeney's, an independent publishing company based in San Francisco that produces books, a humor website, and a journal of new writing, McSweeney's Quarterly Concern.
In his foreword to Kurt Vonnegut: Complete Stories Eggers wrote, "'Damn it, you got to be kind.' This epitaph was written on a gravestone Vonnegut drew and sent to me. One could try to make Vonnegut's philosophy more involved than that, but it wouldn't get any closer to the truth. Be kind. Do no harm. Take care of your family. Don't start wars."
