Please join us on March 2 for a fundraiser for a new youth writing lab and tutoring center in Brooklyn. 826 Valencia, McSweeney's nonprofit sister in San Francisco, is opening a branch in Brooklyn, and boy do we need funding help. As in San Francisco, the writing lab will provide free after-school tutoring to all comers, will sponsor student publications, and will build a corps of tutors who will assist teachers in their classrooms. On March 2 at Symphony Space, Roddy Doyle, Nick Hornby, Jonathan Safran Foer, and Dave Eggers will read and entertain you, as will host John Hodgman and other guests yet to be announced.
