Digital presentation - Wallace Stegner, a biographical film portrait of the acclaimed writer, conservationist and teacher, celebrates the 2009 centennial of his birth. Stegner, who became one of America’s most notable writers with books like the Pulitzer Prize-winning Angle of Repose and Beyond the Hundredth Meridian, mentored a generation’s great writers, including Ken Kesey, Edward Abbey and Larry McMurtry. Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor also was a student. Stegner’s The Wilderness Letter became the conscience of the conservation movement. This one-hour documentary paints a portrait of the West that Stegner so loved and reveals insights into his life through interviews with his famous students, contemporaries and family. Peter Coyote narrates.
