I will be part of what appears to be a most fascinating discussion at this festival. I’ll be on stage with Christopher Ingraham, the man who wrote the piece in the Washington Post about Red Lake Falls as the worst place in America to live. Invited to visit the town he lambasted, he found it so disarmingly engaging that he and his family moved from Washington D.C. and took up residence in Red Lake Falls, where he still lives today.
