Natrona County and Wyoming writers are urged to save the date for the 36th Annual Casper College Literary Conference, Nov. 16-17.

This year’s theme is “Good Trouble.” “Riffing off the late John Lewis’ idea that we must ‘ … find a way to get in the way, to get in trouble … good trouble, necessary trouble … ‘ … we are celebrating the rebel, the antagonist who risks career and safety to pursue bigger things. We are celebrating the ability to question power structures. We are honoring the long-standing American tradition of bucking the system and standing up for the little guy,” said David Zoby, conference director and Casper College English instructor.

Workshops for this year’s conference will be led by essayist Amy Butcher, the author of “Mother Trucker;” novelist David Wright Falade, author of “Black Cloud Rising;” and Chad Hanson, Ph.D., author of seven books, nonfiction and poetry collections.

In addition to the three workshops, the conference will feature the “Good Trouble Book Club.” There will be two book clubs. One club will feature a discussion on “Mother Trucker” by Butcher, and another separate club will feature a discussion on Falade’s “Black Cloud Rising.”

“All of these writers are top-notch and known for their outstanding teaching too. They are in high demand, so I wanted to lock them down early,” Zoby said.

All workshops and the two book clubs are free and open to all. Additional details on the conference will be released closer to the actual event. For more information, contact Zoby at 307-268-2379 or dzoby@caspercollege.edu.
