The Wyoming Center for the Book at the State Library has announced that the next Wyoming Book Festival will be held in Cheyenne September 19, 2009.
WCFB Director Tina Lackey will be coordinating the event, which debuted last year on the grounds of the State Capitol and surrounding government buildings. It was a festive atmosphere, with scores of readings, book signings and panel presentations by more than 70 Wyoming poets and writers. The Wyoming Arts Council staffed an information tent in front of its historic building, and our backyard was the site of the poetry tent. WAC staffer Mike Shay (also your trusty wyomingarts correspondent) read from his book of stories and appeared on a nature writing panel with Gary Ferguson, Jeff Lockwood, and Chip Rawlins.
