Reading Wyoming

Reading Wyoming is a book discussion program, available to any non-profit organization or public agency in Wyoming. The program brings community members and a humanities discussion leader together to read and talk about selected books. The sponsoring organization, in conjunction with the discussion leader, selects the Reading Wyoming series. Discussions take place during the specified time with a group of 8 to 20 participants.

The Wyoming Humanities Council provides publicity, multiple copies of the books and expenses for the discussion leader. Contact Leslie Capps, (307) 721-9243,, for assistance.
