Leif Enger grew up in Osakis and now lives in Dululth, MN. He is a major, nationally recognized and beloved fiction writer and has just published his first novel in 10 years—Virgil Wander. The book is set in a small fictitious town on the shores of Lake Superior and includes a number of lovable and quirky characters, some mystery, a little adventure and a little romance, a small, dying movie theater operated by Virgil, a Norwegian man who designs and flies fantastic kites … it’s a wonderful story and it is sure to be a big hit! We have plenty of copies on hand now (it was released October 2nd) so you have time to read it before Leif comes for a signing.
