Join us this Labor Day weekend as The Regulator welcomes bestselling author Dave Eggers (A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius) for a reading and signing of his newest picture book, What Can a Citizen Do?

Set against Shawn Harris’s stunning papercut illustrations, What Can a Citizen Do explores the meaning of citizenship in a fun and engaging way.  What Can a Citizen Do? gives the youngest among us - and the grownups who are guiding them - the inspiration to make change today, and become leaders in the future.

A selection of Dave Eggers’s books will be available for sale and signing, including The Monk of Mokha, the third in Eggers’s series of real-life accounts of immigrants to America caught in the jaws of history. This event is free and open to the public.

Dave Eggers is the author of many books, including Heroes of the Frontier, The Circle, and A Hologram for the King. He is the cofounder of: Voice of Witness, an oral-history series focused on human rights; 826 National, a network of writing and tutoring centers; and ScholarMatch, which connects donors and under-resourced students to make college possible.
