Kate S | 5992 comments Read a book by an author whose initials in any order can be either the two-letter postal abbreviation for a U.S. State/Territory or Canadian Province. Examples: O. Henry=OH (Ohio); Ayelet Waldman=WA (Washington); Carol Rifka Blunt=BC (British Columbia); Anna Katherine Green=AK (Alaska). All initials can be used. Note: both "NB" and "NE" will be accepted for Nebraska.

Please post any discussion about task 10.6 in this thread.

US

Canada


Elizabeth (Alaska) | 11851 comments I'm sorry, we should have included the links. This is a repeat task from Winter 18/19 and we just forgot to relink them.

US State abbreviations.

Canadian Provinces
