Our View: Thumbs up to DeKalb library trying to engage local readers

Thumbs up: To the DeKalb Public Library. Library staff built a display about author Alexander McCall Smith to try to win a visit from the popular writer. McCall Smith has a doctorate in law and is an expert on medical law and bioethics, but became a fiction author after winning a writing contest. He wrote “44 Scotland Street,” “Portuguese Irregular Verbs,” “Corduroy Mansion,” “Max and Maddy,” “The Sunday Philosophy Club,” “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” and many more titles for adults and children. He’d likely delight local residents if he does indeed visit. Local library leaders should learn by Feb. 3 if they won the contest.
