I’m not one to wait in long lines at a book festival to chat with an author and get some sharpie scribbles on a cover page. (Not for me anyway…done it many times with my kids and thankful for how the authors always take time to engage them!) But, when Leif Enger was at the Tucson Festival of Books, it seemed important to have him sign a copy of one of my favorite books ever: Peace Like a River. That doesn’t say much of anything about Virgil Wander, but offers helpful context for me to say that it held up to my high expectations.
