Color Online Quiz: Literature and Women's Studies

Quiz #89
Answer the question and your name will be entered in a monthly drawing. Post your reply to the comment box. Must include your e-mail to be eligible to win. Winners choose their own book from our Prize Bucket.

This week's quiz is a little different. In light of the recent whitewashing controversy with Magic Under The Glass, please post any whitewashing of a title past or present. If you can provide images, please send the pics to me at cora_litgroup. put Quiz on subject line.


Every commenter who responds with a title will be entered in January's drawing. You can read more how Color Online is taking a stance against whitewashing here, Readers Against WhiteWashing.
