What a month! Dave Eggers, Michael Chabon, J.…

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

What a month! Dave Eggers, Michael Chabon, J. Richard Gott, Sandra Cisneros, Jonathan Schorr, Jamie "Naked Chef" Oliver, and my old Russian History prof Reginald Zelnik are all doing events sponsored by Cody's Books this month. Caution: some of these events are at other venues or at Cody's on 4th St., but most are at Cody's on Telegraph Avenue.

In early November, Tuesday the 5th to be exact (Election Day!), Garrison Keillor appears in a Cody's-sponsored event at the First Congregational Church of Berkeley (Dana between Channing and Durant). Our events coordinator surprised me by agreeing to let me do the introduction! Tickets will go on sale soon.
