This Bridge Will Not Be Gray

If you’re a nerd like me who might still have the yellowing copy of The New Yorker which introduced Dave Eggers, then you too might enjoy introducing your children to a heartbreaking work of staggering genius.  This Bridge Will Not Be Gray follows Irving Morrow as he fights for the now beloved international orange color of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge.  Our kids were chanting along with the unconventional hero, who refuses to settle for doing things the way they’ve always been done before.
