The Good Mule Project is an event series at the University of Wyoming fostering a community of dialogue and action through the lens of activism.

What's in a name?

The Good Mule Project’s name recognizes the steadfast and resilient nature of the mule. Our communities are facing vast and complex issues and are in need of individuals with personal stories, ideas, and talents to be committed to the continual process required of creating positive change through activism. The Good Mule Project seeks to impart the nature of the mule onto such individuals we encounter as activists.

SLCE April Book Club 

April 23rd, 2024


Union, Warm Valley Room (202)


April is Earth month, so we'll be diving into one of Edward Abbey's most popular works, Desert Solitaire.

Desert Solitaire is a collection of vignettes about life in the wilderness and the nature of the desert itself by park ranger and conservationist, Edward Abbey. The book details the unique adventures and conflicts the author faces, from dealing with the damage caused by development of the land or excessive tourism, to discovering a dead body. However Desert Solitaire is not just a collection of one man’s stories, the book is also a philosophical memoir, full of Abbey’s reflections on the desert as a paradox, at once beautiful and liberating, but also isolating and cruel. Often compared to Thoreau’s Walden, Desert Solitaire is a powerful discussion of life’s mysteries set against the stirring backdrop of the American southwestern wilderness.

Limited paperback copies are available, if you'd like to read (or listen) to our book digitally you can visit the Library's website on ebooks & audiobooks to learn more. Folks enjoying our book digitally are welcome & encouraged at our in person discussion session on April 23rd @ 4 PM in Union 202.
