EAST LANSING (AP) -- Dave Eggers' novel "Zeitoun" is the focus of the monthlong "One Book, One Community" event in East Lansing.
The city and Michigan State University are presenting the novel set in post-Hurricane Katrina New Orleans as the selection for the event.
Eggers is scheduled to be at East Lansing High School on Sunday night to kick it off. He also is scheduled to welcome freshmen to campus Monday morning during an event at the Breslin Student Events Center.
A series of community and campus events are planned around the themes in the book.
