Ernest Hemingway's 1928 stay in the Bighorn mountains will be the presentation topic at the Sheridan County Historical Society Dinner this Thursday evening.
Judy Slack compiled all materials the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library had in the Wyoming Room about Hemingway's stay in her recently published book.
Giving us a preview of her presentation, she tells us what Hemingway was doing in Wyoming.
The book was compiled so library didn't have to make copies every time someone wanted to view the Hemingway materials because they were so fragile. The library is in the process of scanning all materials in the Wyoming Room to protect originals and offer more copies to users. Slack, a librarian for the Wyoming Room, said that they also are able to scan personal copies of photos, letters etc and return it to the owner so it can be used in the library.
It's free to just hear the talk but dinner costs $14. If you want dinner the deadline to call the museum is by noon Tuesday. The event will take place at the Shrine on 145 W. Loucks with dinner at 6 and the free presentation at 6:45. Call the museum at 675-1150 by noon to make a reservation for dinner.
