MARJORIE ROSEN
Main Library, Darragh Center, 1:30 p.m.

Last year, David Koon wrote in the Times about Rosen's book on the impact of Wal-Mart's growth on Bentonville, “Boom Town: How Wal-Mart Transformed an All-American Town into an International Community,” after Rosen had scheduled readings in Bentonville and Rogers libraries canceled.

LAUREN HALL
ASI Room 124, 3 p.m.

Author Dave Eggers came to the Clinton School last year and talked about 826 Valencia, the nonprofit he founded to promote childhood literacy. Some of those in attendance expressed interest about starting a branch of 826 (there are seven throughout the country) in Little Rock. Now, Hall, a former Little Rocker and the current development director for 826 National, comes to town to talk about youth writing programs and, hopefully, about how we can get an 826 here.

Also: “Arkansongs' ” Stephen Koch introduces the Butler Center's David Stricklin (1:30 p.m., Cox Creative Center third floor meeting), author of “Louis Armstrong: The Soundtrack of the American Experience.” And novelists Ben Farmer and Matt Baker (3 p.m., Main Library East Room) talk about writing their first novels, “Evangeline” and “Drag the Darkness Down,” respectively.
