Scholarly Authors Quiz – guessing closed

Last week’s quiz was just too easy, so this week it’s all about educated guesses.  Match these authors with what they studied in college. 8 points each.

You have until noon Saturday to submit your answers as a comment.  Comment will be hidden until I post the answers.  No Googling!

This round starts today and will last til the end of March.  The person with the most points will win a B&N gift card (total $ based on # of total participants, so please play) and a randomly selected participant will win a fun prize from me.

Have fun and Good Luck!

      This was very hard, which is why when I made it a few months ago I never posted it. But, Gage has had a double ear infection for a week and I had no time to work on another. You exceeded your expectations by one correct answer! 24 points 🙂
