Dave Eggers interviewed by Aniya Butler

There’s nothing as sure as the ground beneath your feet. That is, unless there’s a whole world down there you don’t know about. In critically acclaimed author Dave Eggers’ new book for middle graders, “The Lifters,” our heroes discover a complex underground system that gives way to something nefarious. What if it were up to just two kids to stop these dark forces? What would it feel like to have the fate of an entire town on your shoulders? Readers of any age will enjoy hearing literary magician Eggers conjure another timeless tale. Interviewing Dave is Aniya Butler, a sixth-grade poet activist from Downtown Charter Academy.
