Literature of the West at High Country News

The October 29th issue of High Country News, the magazine "For people who care about the West" includes book reviews and information about Western literature, new and old.

Scroll down the page to "Book Reviews" and check out a fall reading list, a new book by Deirdre McNamer about Montana, a new collection of essays by William Kittredge, two books about wildfires, and a 'best of' list of books about the Pacific Northwest.

My favorite selection is the literary trivia quiz; you can see the questions online and make your guesses, but to find the answers you'll need to visit the library and take a look at the hard copy of the magazine - on the shelf in the periodicals at the Main Library. Consider it a bit of a scavenger hunt, and take some books home with you to get started on your wintertime reading.
