Buffalo writer and musician David Romtvedt will be hitting the road on Aug. 19 for a series of readings from his new novel, “Zelestina Urza in Outer Space.” He also will talk about Basque history and, along with accompanist Caitlin Belem, will perform Basque songs and lead audiences in Basque dances. The tour continues through Aug. 27 and then the duo takes a break in September and will resume their travels on Oct. 15. These events are made possible by the University of Nevada Center for Basque Studies with support from the Johnson County (WY) Library Foundation, the Caitlin Long Excellence Fund, the University of Wyoming English Department, and the Wyoming Cultural Trust Fund, a program of the Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources.
