Gregory Thompson talked about the Wallace Stegner Collection at the University of Utah’s J. Willard Marriott Library. The collection features multiple items, including Stegner’s manuscripts and journals, which he left to the University of Utah after his death in 1993. Known as “The Dean of Western Writers,” Wallace Stegner was born in 1909 in Lake Mills, Iowa, before moving to Salt Lake City in 1921. Over the next sixty years he wrote thirty books about the need to preserve the West, including Angle of Repose and Where the Bluebird Sings to the Lemonade Springs.
