The event is sponsored by the National Park Service and Devils Tower Natural History Association.

Published by the National Park Service, Standing Witness is based on superintendents’ notes, monument archives, historical publications, and personal interviews. Researched and written as a commemorative history of America’s first national monument, the book includes photographs, an extensive bibliography, and a complete index. The 290-page trade paperback sells for $12.95 and may be ordered by contacting Linda Tokarczyk, Devils Tower Natural History Association, P. O.

Rogers, a freelance writer from Sundance and member of Bearlodge Writers, recently was invited to contribute to a forthcoming collection of poems to honor Ted Kooser, a former U.S. Poet Laureate from Nebraska. Her work is also included in three Houghton Mifflin collections of women’s writing, several literary chapbooks juried by national award-winning writers, and many regional publications.
