In conjunction with Sheridan College and Wyoming Humanities’ multi-year National Endowment for the Humanities grant, “Creating Humanities Communities along the Hemingway Highway”, the Wyoming State Library and Wyoming Humanities have selected Hemingway’s first short story collection, In Our Time (1925), as 2019’s One Book Wyoming.
This collection covers a number of different topics—World War I, fatherhood and family, war’s impact on soldiers, humans’ relationship with nature—which will allow libraries to tailor discussions to their communities’ interest. Wyoming Humanities will provide funds for libraries that wish to use a discussion leader.
