Attend a talk on Teddy Roosevelt and his love of books at Natrona County Library on February 19 at 6:30 pm. “The Man in The Arena” is a celebration of Theodore Roosevelt – the essential American. Owen Wister, who knew him well, called him “the most American American who ever lived!” There is no subject about which he did not thirst for knowledge: history, politics, philosophy, nature, linguistics, taxidermy, poetry – the list is endless. He loved books – he read in seven languages, including Portuguese. He wrote books – thirty-six books in all on a bewildering variety of subjects. He was a man who loved to talk philology with Harvard professors and bug collections with six-year-olds. Co-Sponsored by Artcore, KUYO, the Des & Carrie Bennion Family/The Bon Agency, KCWY 13, Natrona County Library and the Ramkota. Partial funding is from the Wyoming Community Foundation – Casper Area and Natrona County School District No. 1. Call 577-7323 for more information.
