      ++ "Mixed Bag of 3 Trivia Questions -- #07: Who's Who -- Sylvia Beach" ++
Question #1: Who was Sylvia Beach?
        A. Married to the British poet, Ted Hughes, she was an American writer who belonged to the Confessional poetry (i.e., the poetry of the personal or "I." style) movement, or
        B. As an American living in Paris, Sylvia started her own bookstore in 1919, called Shakespeare and Company -- specialized in modern literature, and catered to the growing number of English speaking readers in Paris, or

        C. Sylvia [KF7UHM] checks in with Jessica [KF7UHK] regularly on the Insomniac-Net.

Question #2: Why was Sylvia Beach famous in literary circles?
        A. She became famous only after her death with the publication of her semi-autobiographical novel, The Bell Jar, and her collection of poetry, Ariel, or
        B. She became famous in 1921 for risking her own money and reputation by publishing James Joyce’s novel Ulysses -- which was declared too pornographic to be published, or
        C. Sylvia [KF7UHM] and Jessica [KF7UHK] like sailing, music & laser light shows, and traveling.

Question #3: How did Sylvia Beach die?
        A. After her husband left her and their two children, the last thing she wrote was a note she gave to her downstairs neighbor instructing him to call the doctor, and then she committed suicide using her gas oven, or
        B. Although her bookstore was closed in 1941 during the German occupation of Paris, she lived nearby until she died in 1962 at the age of 75 from apparent heart failure.

Sylvia [KF7UHM] and Jessica [KF7UHK] are alive and well and should be checking in during our Net tonight.
