    One of my all time favorite authors- Ivan Doig will be missed. We were fortunate to have him as our Whidbey Reads author about 10 years ago. He was a class act to work and generous to all who attended his presentation. Condolences to his family. Sincerely, Leslie Franzen, Branch Manager/Coupeville Library.

    Ivan Doig’s works will live on, of course, but as a Montanan who left for Seattle, then Eastern Washington, and an avid reader and fan if his, I cannot imagine this world without him. A sad, sad day for all of us; what a loss. My husband Larry counted him as his favorite author, and was just rereading one of his books last evening. We both admired him greatly, and felt he honored both Montana and Washington. What a way with words; he could turn a phrase in such a way that led me to retread passages repeatedly. Sharon Clinton

    I offer a tribute to Ivan Doig posted on my blog yesterday. http://arepreading.tumblr.com/post/116040724151/doig.

    Thank you PNBA for providing this online wake for Ivan. It’s comforting to read others’ warm words for an author, and friend, whom we were so lucky to have known. My last event at Third Place Books was introducing Ivan for Work Song (to a packed house, of course). I had told him I was moving, and he began his reading with a generous thank-you to me and to “all the independent booksellers.” He was a true gentleman.
