SF homeboy and best-selling author Dave Eggers will discuss his latest book Zeitoun at Books Inc. on July 28 at 12 pm.
When Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, Abdulrahman Zeitoun, a prosperous Syrian-American and father of four, chose to stay through the storm to protect his house and contracting business. A week later Zeitoun abruptly disappeared.
Eggers’s riveting nonfiction book, three years in the making, explores Zeitoun’s roots in Syria, his marriage to an American who converted to Islam, and the surreal atmosphere in which what happened to Abdulrahman Zeitoun was possible.
