Steamboat Pilot & Today

— Each fall, the Bud Werner Memorial Library presents One Book Steamboat, a community read for Steamboat Springs. In 2016, the community is 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 are posted daily, Oct. 1 to 7, in the Steamboat Today and on the library's website and Facebook page.
