A Hologram for the King, set in a Saudi Arabian city, centers around a struggling businessman driven abroad by the possibility of foreclosure back home to keep his family together in a ruthless globalized economy.

Eggers is the founder of San Francisco-based and now defunct MIGHT magazine, the Believer, and Lucky Peach. He has also worked to create a number of non-profit writing centers across the country to nurture young writers and encourage the craft of writing, and founded ScholarMatch to connect students who cannot afford to pay for college with potential donors.

The signing will be from noon to 1 pm on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at Green Apple Books in the Inner Richmond neighborhood.
