Award-winning Minnesota author, Leif Enger, was the luncheon speaker at CLIC's annual holiday event. Leif is the author of Peace Like a River and So Brave, Young, and Handsome, and is currently writing his third novel.
After the luncheon, Leif signed copies of his books.
Special guests honored at the CLIC luncheon included new Minitex Executive Director Valerie Horton, former CLIC Executive Director Tom Nichol, and library directors Julie Rochat and Carol Johnson who are retiring at the end of this year.
There was also a drawing for door prizes and centerpieces, and four lucky winners went home with copies of Leif Enger's books.
