Reading Wyoming Jackson: “The Master and Margarita” @ Jackson Whole Grocer Community Room
Mar 22 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Reading Wyoming Jackson: "The Master and Margarita" @ Jackson Whole Grocer Community Room

Come discuss books that examine the topic of immigration and displacement, moderated by local scholar Stephen Lottridge.

The fourth and final discussion focuses on Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita.  “When the devil arrives in 1930s Moscow, consorting with a retinue of odd associates—including a talking black cat, an assassin, and a beautiful naked witch—his antics wreak havoc among the literary elite of the world capital of atheism. Meanwhile, the Master, author of an unpublished novel about Jesus and Pontius Pilate, languishes in despair in a psychiatric hospital, while his devoted lover, Margarita, decides to sell her soul to save him. As Bulgakov’s dazzlingly exuberant narrative weaves back and forth between Moscow and ancient Jerusalem, studded with scenes ranging from a giddy Satanic ball to the murder of Judas in Gethsemane, Margarita’s enduring love for the Master joins the strands of plot across space and time.”

Come discuss books that help us understand the field of medicine, not only the “what” and “how,” but also exploring the “why” of human experiences.

March’s discussion is focused on Virginia Cornell’s Doc Susie.

“It is 1907 and Doc Susie came to Fraser Colorado with a bad case of tuberculosis and a broken heart. But soon she forgot about her own troubles and lived a life so colorful that Hollywood wanted to make a movie of it. For the first time, here is an account of the real Doc Susie–the amazing, inspiring story of a woman who defied her times and her fears to help those who needed her.”

Read, Rant, Relate: “Grace” @ Relative Theatrics Studio, Room 278 in the Laramie Plains Civic Center
Apr 19 @ 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Read, Rant, Relate: "Grace" @ Relative Theatrics Studio, Room 278 in the Laramie Plains Civic Center

Experience four new pieces of contemporary dramatic literature with Relative Theatrics. Participants will engage directly with modern plays by listening to actor-led readings of the texts, then joining discussions breaking down the thematic elements of the works and their relevance to today’s society.

In April, come discuss Craig Wright’s GraceGrace is a tragicomedy that explores human assumptions about how God, goodness, faith and causality operate in the cosmic machinery.  Steve and Sara have relocated to Sunrise, Florida to pursue an unbelievably wonderful business deal, but as the deal slowly unravels and Steve finds himself afflicted with an itch that just won’t stop, Sara finds herself increasingly drawn to their next-door neighbor, Sam, a badly-scarred victim of a recent car accident who wants nothing to do with her or her Bible-quoting husband.  In the end, with a little help from an old German exterminator who’s still angry about the Allied bombing of Hamburg in World War II, all three characters are confronted by a world that’s both better and worse than any religion can justify.  Themes: faith, religion, love, and change.

Reading Wyoming Baggs: “Wickett’s Remedy” @ Baggs Library, Cowboy Meeting Room
Apr 27 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM
Reading Wyoming Baggs: "Wickett's Remedy" @ Baggs Library, Cowboy Meeting Room

Come discuss books that help us understand the field of medicine, not only the “what” and “how,” but also exploring the “why” of human experiences.

April’s discussion is focused on Myla Goldberg’s Wickett’s Remedy.

“Lydia Kilkenny is eager to move beyond her South Boston childhood, and when she marries Henry Wickett, a shy Boston Brahmin who plans to become a doctor, her future seems assured. That path changes when Henry abandons his medical studies and enlists Lydia to help him invent a mail-order medicine called Wickett’s Remedy. Then the 1918 influenza epidemic sweeps through Boston, and in a world turned upside down Lydia must forge her own path through the tragedy unfolding around her. As she secures work as a nurse at a curious island medical station conducting human research into the disease, Henry’s former business partner steals the formula for Wickett’s Remedy to create for himself a new future, trying—and almost succeeding—to erase the past he is leaving behind.

Alive with narrative ingenuity, and tinged with humor as well as sorrow, this inspired recreation of a forgotten era powerfully reminds us how much individual voices matter—in history and in life.”
