MINING THE LOCAL MYTHOLOGY
With locally raised, award-winning author Leif Enger
JOIN US THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5, 2019
3:15 P.M. IN ATCC ROOM 743
Chart-topping novelist Leif Enger burst onto the literary scene in 2001 with Peace Like a River – one of this century’s few fiction debuts to sell a million copies. Set in northern Minnesota in the 1960s, audiences fell in love with the arcadian small town setting and young narrator every bit as memorable as Huck Finn or ‘Scout’ Finch. Enger’s follow-ups to date include So Brave, Young and Handsome, a classic Western with a Minnesota spin. Along with older brother Lin, he also penned an Edgar Award nominated mystery series about a retired baseball all-star and his less-than restful
retirement in the Northwoods. Enger’s newest, Virgil Wander, centers on a small industrial town past its prime, and the band of residents who love it fiercely. The Wall Street Journal raved: “Virgil Wander brings out the charm and downright strangeness of the defiantly normal.” Since its publication, it has garnered a host of honors, including being named a #1 Indie Next List Pick. Leif Enger was raised in Osakis, Minnesota and worked as a reporter and producer for Minnesota Public Radio for nearly twenty years. Great stories surround us – in the epics of grandparents, the dreams
of oddball neighbors, the gardens of secret insomniacs. Enger will talk about writing novels that make the most of his Midwestern heritage, and how to unlock your own best work using keys already in your pocket.
