Having charmed the literary world at the age of 30 with his best-seller, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers immediately lent his commercial success to the enlightenment of our youth through literature and education. Infusing his personal passions and writing talents into the community, Eggers has taken on numerous philanthropic efforts including 826 Valencia, ScholarMatch and onceuponaschool.org. INFORUM is pleased to award this Bay Area humanitarian with our 21st Century Visionary Award. Eggers has got a way with words, so you won’t want to miss out on this sharp discussion, which is sure to expand your appreciation for the scholastic prospects of our youth and the value of fair access to higher education.
