Niobrara County Library
Plan now to enjoy an evening of Cowboy Poetry on Wednesday, February 16 at 6:30 p.m. at library. Rhonda Sedgwick Stearns will present a program that includes works from classic poets such as Badger Clark, S. Omar Barker, Sharlot Hall, Gail Gardner and that great writer “Anonymous” – as well as her own original poems. Whether reciting the works of classic cowboy poets or her own – Rhonda is insistent upon maintaining authenticity and portraying the cowboy honestly as he was and is.
Proud to be a 3rd-generation Wyoming rancher, Rhonda Sedgwick Stearns has spent most of her six decades with cattle and horses. Reared within 30 miles of where both her grandfathers pioneered in the livestock business, she has followed a lot of their pony tracks. This program is suitable for the entire family and is supported in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts and locally from a grant with the NCSD Recreation District.
