Trivia contest

The News-Argus is once again holding a trivia contest in connection with Wayne County Reads. Answers can be found in Daniel Wallace's "Big Fish," this year's selection for the countywide reading program.

Winners will be drawn from all correct entries and will receive an autographed copy of the novel or a DVD of its movie adaptation.

This week's question: What was the name of the giant who terrorized the town of Ashland?

Drop off answers, along with name, address and phone number, at the News-Argus office, 310 N. Berkeley Blvd., by noon Friday. Or send emails to mshaw@newsargus.com.
