Shortly after arriving in the Twin Cities, President Kaler and his wife Karen stopped by the U of M Bookstore to browse and share with us their favorite authors and titles. They both enjoy Roger Rosenblatt and Richard Russo, but after that their preferences diverge.
President Kaler has a fondness for well-written mysteries, such as John Le Carre’ and John Sandford, but he has some favorites among the Dover technical books as well. Biographies also fascinate him, and he mentioned The Power Broker by Robert Caro as one of the best he’s read.
Karen Kaler leans toward literary fiction and enjoyed The Poisonwood Bible and The World According to Garp, among many others.
