‘Sometime Creek: A Wyoming Memoir’ talk Oct. 11th
Book talk with Florence Rose Krall-Shepherd
October 3, 2012
The Sublette County Library in Pinedale invites you to attend an informal book talk with Florence Rose Krall Shepard in the reading area on Thursday, October 11th at 6:30 pm. Shepard will share readings from her book and will have copies available for sale the evening of the program.
Her book, Sometimes Creek:A Wyoming Memoir, details her life from childhood to adulthood in rural Wyoming during the 20th century. She is the daughter of Italian immigrants who settled in Wyoming in the late 1800’s looking for a fresh start.
Her memoir is a carefully woven story from her earliest memories of the ranch that she lived on for many years to the later stages of her life. From the landscape of childhood on a sheep ranch during the Great Depression, through schooling in a one-room school to universities, marriages and motherhood, teaching and environmental activism, she pays tribute to her nurturing Italian parents and the wonders of the natural world. Challenges faced on her journey became divides from which she gained a new perspective.
Florence Rose Krall Shepard is Professor Emerita of Educational Studies at the University of Utah, where she taught educational, environmental and feminist studies. She is the proud matriarch of four children, seven grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Flo lives in a cabin in the Hoback Basin in Wyoming much of the year and winters in Salt Lake City, Utah.
