This is perfect grilled cheese weather, and local writer celeb Dave Eggers is serving up a whole batch of 'em for free to the public next week. It's part of a pair of pretty cool sounding McSweeney's events for Austin author Bill Cotter, whose book, Fever Chart, was released by Eggers' publishing house. The novel focuses on a post-institutionalized Jerome Coe, who grabs a ride to New Orleans around Mardi Gras and ends up with "a bandaged hand, world-champion grilled cheese sandwiches, and only the occasional psychotic break."

To hear more about this book, and to nosh on Cotter and Eggers' handiwork, go to City Lights on Wednesday, Feb. 17, at 7 p.m. Cotter will be there with his wife, poet Annie La Ganga. Two nights later, on the 19th, Cotter moves over to Amnesia, where his celebrity literary sandwich servers include Starlee Kine, a great This American Life contributor. That night will also showcase music by accordionist Rob Reich, who'll offer a fitting soundtrack to the New Orleans theme (and who just happened to be the guest DJ on KUSF early this morning).  Both readings/eatings are free, but definitely arrive early if you go.
