826 LA Time Travel Mart information
There’s a strange and beautiful light glowing in these cages, from these shelves. At first glance, this is a convenience store for time travelers, stocked with anything a time traveler might need. There are products from the past and from the future. You know, like whale oil (not really) and spice rubs (really). There are suction-cup clocks and coolers filled with robot milk and ostrich eggs. But, in all actuality, it’s just a front for a drop-in tutoring program specializing in homework help and writing workshops. All the proceeds are funnelled into the program, the brainchild of author, screenwriter, and McSweeny’s founder, Dave Eggers. Volunteers are always welcome.
