Eggers honored for work

Dave Eggers used earnings from his autobiographical 2000 best-seller "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" to launch 826 Valencia, a nonprofit writing and tutoring center in San Francisco for children ages 6 to 18. The center has replicated itself in five other cities, with another branch scheduled to open this fall in Boston.
