On Tuesday, September 30th the Columbia Public Library and William Woods University were treated to a talk by the author of this year’s One Read book, Ivan Doig. Mr. Doig spoke to us via videoconference and took questions from the audience at both facilities. It was a delight to see him and hear his thoughts on “The Whistling Season” as well as his writing habits. Ivan Doig said he draws on his early years growing up in Montana and his career as a journalist in Illinois. He said he learned early on in his professional life that he preferred using his imagination to tell a story rather than reporting the facts.
He even read a portion of his sequel to “The Whistling Season” which he is working on right now!
Tell us what you think of Ivan Doig’s writing and storytelling.
