Wyoming Humanities Council Current Events Program in Lusk Nov. 6

The Wyoming Humanities Council invites Lusk residents to participate in a current events videoconference discussion called “What’s News?” on Friday, November 6, from 7-9 pm at the video site in the school district administration building.

Jordan Dresser and Gracie Lawson-Borders will facilitate the session. Niobrara County Library is a local partner for the event. Participants at video sites in Greybull, Lander, and Laramie will join the discussion.

Dresser has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Wyoming. He works for the marketing department of the Wind River Casino and has been a reporter for the Denver Post, Salt Lake Tribune, Lincoln Journal Star, Fargo Forum and Reznet News.

Lawson-Borders is an associate dean in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Wyoming and a faculty member in communication and journalism. She has been a reporter and editor at the Akron Beacon-Journal, the Oakland Press and the Chicago Tribune.

“We want people to arrive with newspapers and magazines in hand, ready to talk with reporters about the news,” said Marcia Wolter Britton, executive director of the Wyoming Humanities Council. “No special preparation is necessary in order to participate in this program.”

“What’s News?” is sponsored by a grant from the UW Outreach School.
