Friday, October 15th, 7pmat the Pritzker Pavilion:Dave Eggers!!!Presented by Quimby’s and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs
A quick note to let you know the Dave Eggers/Haggis-On-Whey event has been moved from the Cultural Center to across the street at the Pritzker Pavilion. It’s only a block away, just a few minutes walk. The address of the Pritzker Pavilion is 205 E. Randolph. You enter it at Washington and Michigan. You can also take a tunnel from underneath Michigan Ave at Randolph across the street too. It’s inside Millennium Park, which is Chicago’s new fancy pansty architectural ado. You know, where the big bean sculpture is.
Seating is limited. But the time of the event is still the same: Friday, October 15th at 7PM.
Dave Eggers will be on tour for the next volume in the Haggis-on-Whey book series.
For many years the scientific and educational community has wondered and worried about the possibility that semi-sane scholar-pretenders would find the means to put out a series of reference books, filled with ludicrous misinformation and aimed at children. These books would inevitably find their way into the hands of households of well-meaning families, who would go to them for facts but instead find bizarre untruths. The books would look normal enough, but would read as if written by people who have eaten too many lead-based paint chips.
Well, happily, that day is upon us. We offer you GIRAFFES? GIRAFFES! and YOUR DISGUSTING HEAD, the first two volumes by Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-On-Whey. A world-renowned and much feared expert on everything, Dr. Doris Haggis-On-Whey has seventeen degrees from eighteen institutions of higher learning. With her husband, Benny, she has traveled the world many times over, has learned about all aspects of life, including outer space and food, first hand.
Besides housing the greatest collection of factoids ever assembled, these books display full color photographs, charts and meaningless diagrams; a plethora of connect-the-dots and word find games; and the several pages devoted to cheap shots at Madagascar.
This event will feature a presentation from Dr. and Mr. Doris Haggis-On-Whey
