Our Christmas episode features two local writers.
Steve talks to Kate DiCamillo about her recent children's novel Louisiana's Way Home. Katrina Elizabeth "Kate" DiCamillo is an American writer of children's fiction for all reading levels, usually featuring animals. She is one of six people to win two Newbery Medals, recognizing her novels The Tale of Despereaux and Flora & Ulysses.
Then he speaks to Leif Enger about Virgil Wander. It's the first in ten years from the award-winning, million-copy bestselling author. Midwestern movie house owner Virgil Wander is 'cruising along at medium altitude' when his car flies off the road into icy Lake Superior. Virgil survives but his language and memory are altered and he emerges into a world no longer familiar to him.
