You people are so smart. If we had just moved to Boise and wanted to know where to go, what to do and whom to know, we would ask Boise Weeklyreaders. Your choice of Anthony Doerr for best Idaho writer shows you are intelligent and well-read. Doerr's 2007 chronicle of life in Rome as a new father, Four Seasons in Rome: On Twins, Insomnia, and the Biggest Funeral in the History of the World, found its way onto bookshelves around the world and as a favorite among Idahoans and non-Idahoans alike. He is in high demand: The desire people have to hear him read and speak keeps him hopping from college to conference year 'round. But no matter where he goes, he's still one of us and a great sense of pride for Idahoans.
