One Book Steamboat Trivia Contest begins

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 weeklong trivia contest, then participate in a month of free discussions and events surrounding the novel. Questions will be posted daily, Oct. 1 through 7, in the Steamboat Today, on the library website and on the library’s Facebook page. Today’s question:
