The answer/question was part of episode #8030, which aired Friday, July 5, on the CBS network.
The clue was one of five in the “Literary Minnesota” category. Other authors featured were Tim O’Brien, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Garrison Keillor and Vilhelm Moberg. Contestant Ryan Bilger correctly solved each clue in the category.
