Gagliano on ‘Discover Great Places Through Reading’ List

Aug 15, 2018

Is it True, a collection of humorous poems by Wyoming Poet Laureate Eugene Gagliano and illustrated by Sarah Bradstreet, will be featured at the 2018 National Book Festival as part of the “Discover Great Places Through Reading” list.

Every year, a list of books representing the literary heritage of the 50 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands is distributed by the Library of Congress’s Center for the Book during the National Book Festival. Each book is selected by a Center for the Book state affiliate or state library and most are for children and young readers. Books may be written by authors from the state, take place in the state, or celebrate the state’s culture and heritage.

See all of this year’s Great Reads by state or download the entire list.

The 2018 National Book Festival will take place in Washington, D.C., on Saturday, September 1. Two Wyoming State Library staffers — Chris Van Burgh, Database Instruction Librarian, and Cary Dunlap, Marketing Manager — will represent Wyoming at its booth in the festival’s Pavilion of the States.
