2/18/09: The Life and Legacy of Wallace Stegner

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Wednesday on RadioWest we're celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Wallace Stegner. Stegner was one of the most important writers of the American West - probably not overstating it to say his book "Angle of Repose" is a masterpiece. Stegner reworked the myth of the West and brought the lives and the landscape of this place into a new focus. We'll talk about his life and his work, his time here in Utah and how his writing still influences our impressions of the West.

  • Wednesday, February 18th at 7:00 p.m., KUED will host a free screening of the new documentary "Wallace Stegner." The free event is at the Salt Lake City Main Library, and for more information, click here
  • The Stegner Center at the University of Utah will host the 14th annual Stegner Symposium March 6-7, 2009. This year's focus is on the the life and legacy of Wallace Stegner. For a detailed schedule and to register, click here or call 801-585-3440.
