Stephen Trimble & the Stegner Centennial
As a Stegner Fellow at the University of Utah's Tanner Center for the Humanities during the 2008-2009 academic year, Steve Trimble will be taking Stegner's writing on the road across Utah, bringing those words home to the places where they started. Wallace Stegner wrote about virtually all of Utah’s landscapes and stories in one or another of his books. In school and community programs, Steve will ask people who live in the locations that Stegner so insightfully memorialized in print to not only read and discuss Stegner's best work but to respond in their own words. Steve will respond, as well, in words and photographs posted on his blog. This rich mix of writing and photography will celebrate not just Wallace Stegner but our interaction with his writing as a living legacy.
