“Howdy” Wyoming postcard exhibit in Cody

howdyEnjoy “Howdy” this month at the Cody Library. It is a traveling exhibit that considers the postcard as a communication device and advertiser of Wyoming’s natural and cultural landscape. Color and black and white images illustrate how postcards have promoted Wyoming as a “vacation dreamland” and a “wonderland of the West.” This exhibit comes from the Wyoming State Museum in Cheyenne.

Author Talk next Tuesday, 2 p.m., in Cody

Frances WorthingtonAuthor Frances Worthington will discuss her book Abraham: One God, Three Wives, Five Religions, 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 2 at a free public program at the library in Cody. Her book examines the life of Abraham, a historical religious figure and his wives/concubines Sarah, Hagar, and Keturah. Christianity, Judaism, Islam, the Bábí Faith, and the Bahá’í Faith religions were all influenced by Abraham and his family. ​ “By tracing the events from century to century, we connect, spiritually as well as genetically, with a fascinating family that lived four thousand years ago,” said Frances.

Art teacher Paige Bacon’s work brightened the hall gallery this month and then she volunteered to do apple art in the children’s activity room, too. Kids got to eat their still life subject as they drew.
