Julianne Couch presents State Museum lecture

First offering for the Wyoming State Museum’s 2008 evening lecture series will be Julianne Couch of Laramie speaking about her book, Jukeboxes & Jackalopes: A Wyoming Bar Journey. It will be held in the museum’s multipurpose room, 2301 Central Ave. in Cheyenne, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 10. It’s free and open to the public.

Julianne is a lecturer in the English Department at the University of Wyoming. Her first book, Jukeboxes and Jackalopes: A Wyoming Bar Journey, was released by Pronghorn Press in June 2007. Along with photographer Ronald Hansen, Julianne visited close to 30 of Wyoming’s most off-the-beaten path bars. The result is a travel memoir comprising essays about exotic and evocatively named watering holes such as Spotted Horse Saloon, Cactus Tree Pub, and Rowdy’s Spirit & Bait. Julianne and Ron will show photos from their bar tour and discuss the Wyoming history they unearthed along the way. A book signing will follow the lecture.
