Beginning in February, the Teton County Library, in conjunction with the Wyoming Humanities Council, begins a statewide Reading Wyoming Civil War reading series; the project will circulate to and include other Wyoming communities as well.
On January 2, the program opens for sign ups. Let’s Talk About It: Making Sense of the American Civil War commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and emancipation. The Wyoming Humanities Council notes: “Max Ludington will lead five conversations, from 6-7 p.m. on Mondays: February 13 and 27, March 12 and 26, and April 9. The series was designed by Ed Ayers from National Public Radio’s History Guys program and will introduce readers to a large cast of characters, explore a range of perspectives, and help participants gain a deeper understanding of America’s Civil War.

Friday, January 6, 2012, join the Factory Studios gang as they celebrate Anniversary Numero Uno! Starting early (for those guys!) the party happens 6:30-8:30 pm. Billed as an evening of art and music, all comers can enjoy exploring the Factory’s maze of studio spaces and meet resident artists. There will be music by the Deadlocks, and you can expect to hang with Factory Founder Travis Walker and these cool folks: Abbie Miller, Aaron Wallis, Tony Birkholz, Peggy Prugh, Anomaly Farm, Camille Davis, XOWYO, Alissa Davies, Rob Hollis, and John Frechette/Strapped Glass.
Work by Jenny Meyer and resident artists will be on exhibit. And there’s more “Wimbledon-style” ping pong planned. This program might be a bit fluid, so check in with the Factory at www.factorystudios.org/index.html
