Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues

Dave Eggers and Michael Kimmelman to speak at Cleveland Public Library as part of Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues. Thursday, December 13th at 7:15pm with a reception in the lobby prior to the conversation at 6:30pm

Spectrum: The Lockwood Thompson Dialogues: Pen & Ink series is a collaborative effort between the Cleveland Public Library and Cleveland Public Art. Free and open to the public, this event will be held at the Cleveland Public Library’s Louis Stokes Wing on Thursday, December 13th at 7:15pm with a reception in the lobby prior to the conversation at 6:30pm.

The Pen & Ink series explores how words and images together have played crucial roles in storytelling and visual communication. Today’s artists and writers continue to push publishing in new directions while challenging the perceptions of high and low art, often with irreverence and razor sharp commentary.

In 1998, he founded McSweeney's, an independent book publishing house in San Francisco. Eggers' book and magazine design work has been featured in many periodicals as well as both the National Design Triennial at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and the California Design Biennial.
