Wallace Stegner Wingding
I'm immersing myself in books by and about Wallace Stegner, the novelist and longtime director of Stanford's writing program. Reason? Sorry, that's classified. But I can tell you that a weekend conference on Stegner and his legacy is shaping up in Point Reyes Station, not far from my San Anselmo shack. Robert Hass will chair it, and it looks tasty. The confirmed lineup includes Robert Stone, William Kittredge, Rebecca Solnit, Barry Lopez, and Page and Lynn Stegner.
