CANCELLED: Valentino Achak Deng / "What is the What"
Plane cancelled due to adverse weather conditions in Midwest
We regret to inform you that poor weather conditions in Michigan are forcing McSweeney's Books to cancel the appearance tomorrow (Sat April 7 at 5pm) of Valentino Achak Deng, the Sudanese refugee who is the subject of Dave Eggers' novel, "What is the What."

We will not be able to reschedule, due to his already full schedule. You can still see him at the Glendale Library on April 17 at 7pm.

Due to the short notice, we would greatly appreciate any help in spreading the word.
