Come on down:
Our own Mike Shay joins Laramie writers Julianne Marie Couch, Jeffe Kennedy, and RoseMarie London for “Seeking Wyoming, Speaking Wyoming” on Friday, July 20, 7-10 p.m., at Everyday Joe’s Coffee House, 144 S. Mason St., on the corner of Oak and Mason in Fort Collins, Colo. We’ll start the evening with a reading, and then sign our books, eat, and drink. We’ll offer some free munchies and sell books while the good folks at Everyday Joe’s sell you caffeinated beverages of one kind or another.
All writers of collections, Julianne’s non-fiction book, finished after years of exhaustive hands-on research, is “Jukeboxes and Jackelopes: A Wyoming Bar Journey.” It’s set for a June release from Greybull’s Pronghorn Press. Jeffe’s essay collection is “Wyoming, Trucks, True Love, and the Weather Channel” from University of New Mexico Press. RoseMarie’s story collection is “The Search for an Inappropriate Man” and Mike’s is “The Weight of a Body” from Ghost Road Press. All of the work is inspired and set (for the most part) in Wyoming. That’s obvious in Jeffe’s and Julianne’s books, as “Wyoming” is right in the title. At least one of Mike’s stories is set in Colorado, and he ranged all the way to Florida for another. For her part, RoseMarie searched high and low for inappropriate men.
Get your literary fix on in Fort Collins July 20.
