Alumni Double Acrostic

By Mark Wood

DIRECTIONS: This acrostic features a work by one of Pomona’s great alumni writers. After you print this page, fill in the words beside the clues, writing a letter above each blank. Transfer each letter to the numbered square of the diagram corresponding to the number below the letter. The letters printed in the right corner of each diagram square indicate the appropriate words below, providing a cross-reference. As you progress, words and phrases taking shape in the diagram will enable you to work not only from word to diagram but also from diagram to word. When completed, the diagram, reading across, will provide a quotation from this published work. The first letters of the words below, reading down, spell out the identity of the book and its author. Click here for the solution.

We welcome puzzle submissions of all types and on all topics. If you’d like to submit a math, logic or word puzzle for the Alumni Puzzler, please send your query or submission to: Mark Wood, Pomona College Magazine, 550 North College Ave., Claremont, CA 91711. Selections will be made on the basis of quality and originality.
