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

The Oct. 3 question is:

Ken Kesey, author of “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” recalled of his teacher, Wallace Stegner…

a. “I said, Wally, since we don’t know where we are going, we have to stick together in case someone gets there.”

b. “I told him, lighten up man, the Grateful Dead are our religion.This is a religion that doesn’t pay homage to the God that all the others play homage to.”

c. “One day I said, Professor, you can count how many seeds are in the apple, but not how many apples are in the seeds.”

d. “As I took LSD and he drank Jack Daniel’s, we drew the line between us right there.”

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

The answer to Monday’s question: Wallace Stegner won the National Book Award in 1977, but he won the Pulitzer Prize earlier for “Angle of Repose,” in 1972. Learn more about One Book Steamboat at
