Julianne Couch, an associate lecturer in the University of Wyoming’s Department of English, is the author of a book named a “Kansas Notable Book” by the State Library of Kansas.

“The Small-Town Midwest: Resilience and Hope in the Twenty-First Century” (University of Iowa Press, 2016) was one of 15 books selected for the award, celebrating Kansas cultural heritage. All winning titles were either written by Kansans or about a Kansas-related topic.

The “Kansas Notable Book” list highlights the state’s lively contemporary writing community. Couch is a Kansas native who completed her education at Emporia State University.

An awards ceremony will be held at the Kansas Book Festival Sept. 9 at the State Capitol. Kansas Notable Books is a project of the Kansas Center for the Book, a program of the State Library. Throughout the award year, the State Library promotes and encourages promotion of all the titles on that year’s list at literary events, and among librarians and booksellers.
