We received over 150 excellent trivia questions to be used as part of our upcoming scavenger hunt, and were thoroughly impressed with the staggering amount of Minnesota-related literary knowledge that’s out there. After much debate and discussion, we were able to narrow the field down to 11 winning questions. The authors of the winning questions came from as far away as Maplewood, New Jersey and East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, and from cities across Minnesota, including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Edina, Foley, and Lindstrom.
Without further hesitation, we offer our hearty congratulations to Emilie B., Patrick C., Rachel C., Janice F., Dobby G., Jennifer H., Dean K., Tatiana O., Deena S., John S., and Cecil W.!
Each winner received a Loft tote bag filled with an advance reader’s copy from Coffee House Press, Graywolf Press, and Milkweed Editions.
With the 11 questions in place, the stage is set for someone to win the big grand prize, worth $1,000. Mark your calendars for the Twin Cities Book Festival on October 10th and get ready to play Around the Literary Twin Cities in (Almost) 80 Days!
