The Door County Libraries announced the book at the center of Door County Reads: 2020 on Wednesday afternoon. This year's selection is Lief Enger's Virgil Wander. He is an established author with a former bestseller to his name. Library Director Tina Kakuske explains why Virgil Wander has been chosen over the more prolific Peace Like a River.
The libraries have built a calendar of events around their novel including the kickoff author talk with Enger himself addressing the community on January 25th at the Sturgeon Bay High School. The libraries are handing out free copies of Virgil Wander while supplies last.
