Where Is It Coming From? - illustrated by Dave Eggers


This is what happens when the insanely original and hilarious stories of elementary-school students are paired with the equally anarchic drawings of a novelist/erstwhile artist. In Where Is It Coming From? author Dave Eggers illustrates brash new stories from fourteen young students of the James and Grace Lee Boggs School in Detroit. The authors, members of 826michigan’s after-school writing club, range in age from 6 to 10 years old and address topics strange and essential. Eggers’ drawings convey the energy and charm of this remarkable group of students and this extraordinary school. Where Is It Coming From? is a special window into the city of Detroit and into childhood. 

Proceeds from this book will support two organizations: 826michigan, which provides free writing and tutoring programs for more than 3,000 school-aged students in Detroit, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor, Michigan; and The James and Grace Lee Boggs School of Detroit, which serves 80 students in Kindergarten through fifth grade and whose mission is to nurture creative, critical thinkers who contribute to the well-being of their communities.
