Bummer. Writer Dave Eggers ("A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" "Zeitoun" "A Hologram for the King"), who had planned two Minnesota book signings in early March, has canceled. A scheduling conflict means he'll no longer make the March 9 signings at Micawber's in St. Paul or Magers & Quinn in Minneapolis.
No word on whether or not he'll reschedule.
A guess even a staggering genius can't be in two places at the same time.
