One Book Steamboat trivia contest continues







Each fall, the Bud Werner Memorial Library presents One Book Steamboat, a community read for Steamboat Springs. In 2016, we are reading "Angle of Repose," the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Wallace Stegner, honoring the Pulitzer centennial and “the dean of Western writers.”

Win a copy of "Angle of Repose" during the week-long trivia contest, then participate in a month of free discussions and events surrounding the novel. Questions will be posted daily through Oct. 7 in Steamboat Today, the library website and the library's Facebook page. Today's question is as follows.

Wallace Stegner was such a die-hard environmentalist that his words are practically enshrined in law. In 1960, he wrote an essay dubbed the "Wilderness Letter," which is included as an introduction to what piece of legislation?

Submit your answer in person at the library front desk, message the Bud Werner Memorial Library Facebook page or email jlay@steamboatlibrary.org. Be sure you include name and contact information.

The answer to Saturday's question: In "Angle of Repose," Susan Ward is Lyman Ward's grandmother, whose state of mind is often conveyed by the use of letters which are based on actually correspondence written by Mary Hallock Foote. Learn more about One Book Steamboat at steamboatlibrary.org/events.
