Founded by Dave Eggers in 1998, McSweeney’s has become an iconic West Coast magazine, book publisher, community organizer, center for literacy, and producer of fun. McSweeney’s executive editor Jordan Bass leads a roundtable discussion with writer Kevin Moffett, 826LA executive director Joel Arquillos, and Mona Simpson, covering the magazine’s current endeavors, its involvement in community life—directly, and through its sister organization 826 National—and what it means to keep written arts a central force in twenty-first century culture.
