California Museum Exhibit Honors Wallace Stegner
During his long and prolific career Wallace Stegner won the Pulitzer Prize for Ficition and the National Book Award. As a writing professor at Stanford University his he taughtLarry McMurtry, Scott Turow and Edward Abbey. Consistently named one of the best writers of the American West, and mentioned as a writer who should have won the Nobel Prize, Stegner's legacy is little appreciated today. The Los Altos History Museum in California has debuted a new exhibit, Wallace Stegner: Throwing a Long Shadow, to honor the man and his work.
