The blog likes to keep track of those artists and writers who — for one reason or another — have taken leave of Wyoming. Aurelie Sheehan is a one-time Sheridan resident who, in the mid-1990s, had one book of funky stories to her credit — Jack Kerouac is Pregnant from Dalkey Archive Press. She now has two published novels. The most recent, History Lesson for Girls, has just been released in paperback from Penguin. Gillian Engberg at Booklist called the book “a tender, unflinching, and distinctive view of how girls grow up.” When not writing, Aurelie teaches at the University of Arizona creative writing program in Tucson.
