Eggers is one of the most notable writers of his generation, recognized for several bestselling and critically acclaimed books. Before he embarked on his writing career, he was classically trained as a draftsman and painter. He then spent many years as a professional illustrator and graphic designer before turning to writing full-time. More recently, in order to raise money for ScholarMatch, his college-access nonprofit, he returned to visual art, and the results have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the country. Usually involving the pairing of an animal with humorous or biblical text, the results are wry, oddly anthropomorphic tableaus that create a very entertaining and eccentric body of work from one of today’s leading culture makers.

We are about to witness the largest retirement of farmers in U.S. history. Meanwhile, 400 million acres of farmland are slated to change hands in the next two decades—an area roughly four times the size of California.
