Dave Eggers net worth: Dave Eggers is an editor, writer and publisher with the net worth of $6 million. Dave Eggers has accumulated his net worth through his many fictional books such as "Sacrament," "How We are Hungry," "The Wild Things" and more. He has also written several nonfictional books such as "A Heart breaking Work of Staggering Genius," "Zeitoun," "Surviving Justice: America's Wrongly Convicted and Exonerated" and more. He has also written many humorous books, and screenplays, as well as writing for the progressive online magazine Salon.com. Eggers started his career writing for Salon.com as their editor and eventually started the magazine "Might." His first book, "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius," was about him raising his younger brother after cancer took their parents. It was listed as a number one best seller and gave Eggers the nomination for the Pulitzer Prize. It was listed as the "Best Book of the Year" by the Time news magazine. His book "Zeitoun" won him "The Courage in Media Award" from the Council of American-Islamic Relations in 2009. Eggers is the founder of the independent publishing house, McSweeney's, as well as being the co-founder of the literacy project 826 Valencia with teacher Ninive Calegari. 826 Valencia is a non-profit organization to help young people develop their writing skills and have extended this project all across the U.S. and are under the sponsorship of 826 National. In 2007 he was awarded the Heinz Award for all the contributions he has made to improve the lives of others. Eggers has also made many musical contributions such as designing the album covers for artists such as "Thrice" and "Paul Banks and the Carousels." He has also provided lyrics for One Ring Zero's song "The Ghost of Rita Gonzolo," from their album "As Smart as We Are." Dave Eggers was born in Boston, Massachusetts in 1970. He had three siblings, Bill, Christopher and Beth. He attended high school in Lake Forest, near Chicago and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He and wife Vendela Vida, who is also a writer, and their two children, are currently living in San Francisco.
Dave Eggers (born March 12, 1970) is an American writer, editor, and publisher. He is known for the best-selling memoir A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and for his more recent work as a screenwriter. He is also the co-founder of the literacy project 826 Valencia.
Eggers was born in Boston, Massachusetts, one of four siblings. His father was John K. Eggers (1936-1991), an attorney. His mother, Heidi McSweeney Eggers (1940-1992), was a school teacher. When Eggers was still a child, the family moved to the upscale suburb of Lake Forest, near Chicago. He attended high school there and was a classmate of the actor Vince Vaughn. Eggers attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, intending to get a degree in journalism, but his studies were interrupted by the deaths of both of his parents in 1991-1992--his father in 1991 from brain and lung cancer, and his mother in January 1992 from stomach cancer. Both were in their 50s.
These events were chronicled in his first book, the lightly fictionalized A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius. At the time, Eggers was 21, and his younger brother, Christopher ("Toph"), was 8 years old. The two eldest siblings, Bill and Beth, were unable to commit to care for Toph; his older brother had a full-time job and his sister was enrolled in law school. As a result, Dave Eggers took the responsibility. He left the University of Illinois and moved to Berkeley, California, with his girlfriend Kirsten and his brother. They initially moved in with Eggers's sister, Beth, and her roommate, but eventually found a place in another part of town, which they paid for with money left to them by their parents. Toph attended a small private school, and Eggers did temp work and freelance graphic design for a local newspaper. Eventually, with his friend David Moodie, he took over a local free newspaper called Cups. This gradually evolved into the satirical magazine Might.
Eggers currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area
