CASPER, Wyoming – The Library of Congress Center for the Book has approved the Wyoming Humanities as the new headquarters for the Wyoming Center For the Book.

Wyoming Humanities announced Monday that the Library of Congress has formally authorized the Wyoming Humanities to take responsibility.

The Wyoming Center for the Book had previously been headquartered under the Wyoming State Library since 1995. The center is responsible for literacy-related events across the state, such as “Letters About Literature,” book festivals in the State and a Wyoming author wiki.

“We are absolutely delighted to seize this new opportunity,” said Shawn Reese, executive director of Wyoming Humanities. “This allows us to strengthen our commitment to programming and partnerships across the state to celebrate Wyoming readers and our state’s literary heritage.”

Lucas Fralick will be the Wyoming Humanities coordinator for the Wyoming Center For the Book.

“This fall, Letters About Literature will return to Wyoming, continuing the legacy of the project to engage students and schools in the excitement of the written word,” Wyoming Humanities said. “Students in grades 4 to 12 are invited to read a book, poem or speech and write to the author about how the book has personally affected them. “

“Wyoming Humanities is currently exploring additional new projects to broaden the scope and depth of projects and events statewide. WCFTB information will soon be available on For more information on any of these projects, contact Fralick at [email protected] or 307-660-0729.
