Samuel Western, author of “Pushed off the Mountain, Sold Down the River,” will lead two evening presentations to explore how Wyoming can build a dynamic future that honors its past.

The interactive presentations will take place at the Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center auditorium on the University of Wyoming campus at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 1, and Thursday, April 5, followed by receptions. The events are free and open to the public.

Special guests participating in the discussions will include Laramie Mayor Andi Summerville and UW law students Casey Terrell and Allison Connell.

In his writing and teaching for Sheridan College and UW, Western long has explored questions about Wyoming’s economy, culture and policies. He shares real stories about the inner workings of Wyoming communities to engage students, readers and audiences in deep thinking about how the state functions for its people.

In this 2018 “New Wyoming Narratives” series, he again will ask audience members to listen closely, think hard and share their own perspectives.

“Legislative action can only go so far,” Western says. “It’s fundamentally up to us to chart the course. But, do we have the capacity to do so? If so, how do we put that capacity into action?”

UW’s Haub School of Environment and Natural Resources sponsors the discussions. For more information, visit or contact Amanda Korpitz at or (307) 766-6979.
