confeitariamag Mais uma dica de ouro da @flaviastefani. Para quem estiver em São Francisco: a 826 Valencia, que é a ONG que o Dave Eggers, do McSweeney's, fundou para ajudar as crianças de escola pública a tomar gosto pela leitura. Flávia conta que "atualmente existem quatro 826s espalhadas pelos EUA. A do Brooklyn é uma loja de super herói. A de Los Angeles é uma máquina de voltar no tempo. A de SF é a minha favorita: uma loja inteira com coisas de pirata -- é uma livraria, na verdade, mas que vende também pernas de aranha, bigode de macaco, coisas de marinheiro e pirata e LIVROS E MAIS LIVROS da editora McSweeneys. É uma loja pequena, mas muito divertida." #sanfrancisco #826valencia #bookstores #dicasconfeitaria 3w

abc7newsbayarea In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month (9/15 thru 10/15), we’re celebrating the amazing Hispanic culture here in the Bay Area. Arrrrrr!!! Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day and – thanks to the vision of an amazing local Latina named Nínive Calegari – you can go to the Pirate Supply Store at 826 Valencia (@826Valencia) in San Francisco’s Mission District to fulfill ALL your pirate needs! The store is actually the retail arm of the literary nonprofit, 826 National (@826National), co-founded by Nínive Calegari and acclaimed author Dave Eggers 12 years ago, where students ages 6-18 get help with writing skills and creativity. As a true champion of students and teachers, Nínive and Dave also co-produced the documentary film “American Teacher” (@TeacherSalaryProject), narrated by actor/activist Matt Damon. And Nínive is now working with the nonprofit Youth Speaks (@youthspeaks), overseeing the Brave New Voices (@BraveNewVoices) Initiative that combines the voices of young people, poetry slams, and arts education across the country. DOUBLE TAP to thank Nínive Calegari for her continual dedication to finding creative ways of engaging kids in writing, language, and the arts! #whereyoulive #abc7celebrates #hispanicheritagemonth #NíniveCalegari #DaveEggers #826Valencia #826National #TalkLikeAPirateDay #TeacherSalaryProject #MattDamon #YouthSpeaks #BraveNewVoices #Latina 1mon
