Trivial Pursuit for Book-Lovers

Note:  Due to Blogger fail, the edition of Trivial Pursuit for Booklovers that I scheduled for today didn't post as scheduled. So I'm posting it again. If you see it twice, you'll know that my cry of "Blogger, I wish I knew how to quit you" is diminishing in volume.

Children's: What book by Lois Lowry finds 12-year-old Jonas rebelling against a futuristic society that has decided he is to become a Receiver of Memories?

Classics: What was Scarlett's original name, in the first drafts of Gone With The Wind--Iris, Pansy or Rose?

Non-Fiction: What famed work of art, unearthed on a Greek island in 1820, had its subsequent history revealed in Gregory Curtis' Disarmed?

Book Club: What inventive Robert Coover novella explores the bond between an errant maid and her master?

Authors: What best-selling British author, convicted of perjury, penned the thriller Sons of Fortune and the memoir A Prison Diary while behind bars?

Book Bag: What character was said to resemble Hoagy Carmichael, in Casino Royale?

Also - I can still see the Lucky Jim post on Google Reader. If you can't get it back, I can cut and paste and send it to you. Crude but effective.

Children's: The Giver

Non-Fiction: I could visualize this statue but had to go look up its name; it's the Venus de Milo.

Book Club: It's not _Girl with a Pearl Earring_, but I don't know it...

Not a great week for me!

I think Scarlett's original name was Rose?

I only know two:

Children's -- The Giver
Classics -- Pansy

Sorry about your blogger problems, I clicked on your Lucky Jim post to make a clever comment and it had disappeared!!

Children's: The Giver
Classics: Pansy - I'm reading a book on the Gone With the Wind saga right now and just learned that. Ugh, Pansy, that would have been awful.
