EEK! It's Egan! 

Celebrated author to speak in Bend

Jennifer Egan is super famous and you should go see her talk.

She won a Pulitzer Prize for her 2011 work of fiction, A Visit from the Goon Squad, has been published in Harpers, The New Yorker and New York Times Magazine. Oh, and she also dated Steve Jobs.

The Brooklyn novelist has also authored five other books, one of which, The Invisible Circus, was eventually adapted for the big screen and starred Cameron Diaz.

Pulitzer judges called A Visit from the Goon Squad "an inventive investigation of growing up and growing old in the digital age, displaying a big-hearted curiosity about cultural change at warp speed." One chapter from the book is written as if it's a PowerPoint presentation.

So, yeah. She's famous and smart and creative. You can see her on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Bend Senior High School auditorium. Tickets range from $20-75.
