Home is Burning: A Memoir

When: Mon., May 21, 6-7 p.m. 2018

Dave Eggers meets David Sedaris in this uproariously funny, unflinchingly honest, and tender memoir. Dan's mom has always had cancer. First diagnosed when he was only ten years old, she was the model of resilience throughout his childhood, fighting her disease with tenacity and a mouth foul enough to make a sailor blush. But just as she faces a relapse, her husband is diagnosed with ALS. Dan, a recent college graduate living the good life in Los Angeles, has no choice but to return home to help.
