Special guests included cofounder (and McSweeney’s editor) Dave Eggers and the Globe’s own Dan Wasserman. 826 Boston teaches creative and expository writing to kids and helps teachers inspire students to write. It has delivered one-on-one writing support to more than 7,000 students in Boston schools.
