Big Piney Book Group: Wyoming Writing
December 3, 2004
Have you thought about joining a book group? This winter is the perfect time! The Big Piney Library is hosting a new book group examining Wyoming authors and what it means to live in Wyoming, with its theme, "Writing Wyoming".
Partially sponsored by the Wyoming Council for the Humanities, book group discussions on featured books occur once a month at the Big Piney Library. Featured books are available one month before the discussion date. The discussion on January 24, 2005, will focus on ‘Deep West’, an assortment of works by contemporary Wyoming authors. The discussion on February 28 will focus on ‘Where Rivers Change Direction,’ Mark Spragg’s memoir of adolescence on an isolated dude ranch. The March 21 discussion will feature ‘Windmill’, by David Romtvedt, on Wyoming small town living.
Whether you’d like to read something different, or just share and discuss what you’ve read, the Book Group is a great way to expand your reading or to just meet new people. Pinedale also has a book group that meets once at month from 11:30 am to 1 pm. Everyone is invited to attend any or all of the sessions. Featured books are available 30 days before their discussion date. Pinedale’s book discussion winter theme is ‘Living with Violence: Conflict and Community in Contemporary Cultures’.
