This week on 49 Voices, we’re doing something a little different. John Borg was the mayor and postmaster of Eagle, Alaska, in 1976 when author John McPhee came through to research for his best-selling book Coming into the Country. For 40 years now, readers come into Eagle every summer asking about the characters they met in the book. John Borg shared his thoughts with Alaska’s Energy Desk about what it’s like to host these literary tourists.
