The question was pitched contentiously from the front of the auditorium at Calvin College, while I sat further back, waving my arms, Hermione Granger-style, hoping to have the chance to ask Marilynne Robinson a teensy question about a character from her acclaimed novel Housekeeping. As is usual for me when I hear what might be taken for fighting words, I became chilled, and trembled a little. In short, I felt afraid.
