A strong sense of place can deeply influence a story, and in some cases, the location can even feel like a character itself. This week’s quiz is about novels with significant settings in America’s Great Plains states. Although the works of Willa Cather and Laura Ingalls Wilder may first come to mind, the region also provides a locale for the five 21st-century books featured in this literary geography challenge.
To play, just make your selection in the multiple-choice list and the correct answer will be revealed. Links to the books will be listed at the end of the quiz if you’d like to do further reading. And don’t forget: A new quiz arrives every week on the Books page and previous quizzes can be found here.
