Author John Straley will speak at LCCC

CHEYENNE, WYO. — John Straley, former criminal defense investigator and current full-time writer, is coming to Cheyenne to speak with audiences about his life and work.

This event takes place at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11, in the Clay Pathfinder Building on the LCCC Campus. Free and open to the community, the program is presented by the Dinneen Writers Series and the LCCC Foundation.

Known for such works as Cold Storage, Alaska and The Woman Who Married a Bear, Straley is known for witty mysteries and crime novels. His works have received praise from critics across the country.

As Alaska's Writer Laureate, he dedicated his time to literacy outreach to under-served students and incarcerated people.
