Event Date: Apr 17, 2008
Event Time: 7:00 p.m.
Location: Macky Auditorium

The Center of the American West, in conjunction with the University of Colorado Law School, was proud to present one of the most influential, and interesting, Westerners of our time, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, with the 2008 Wallace Stegner Award. Justice O’Connor was the first female Supreme Court Justice and her time on the bench is marked by a brand of independent thought often associated with Western character. She is also the coauthor of the memoir Lazy B, a collaboration between Justice O’Connor and her brother Alan. This memoir recounts their experience growing up on a ranch along the Arizona-New Mexico border. Justice O’Connor spoke at Macky Auditorium at 7:00 on April 17th. This very special Center of the American West Wallace Stegner Award ceremony was not one to be missed.

The Wallace Stegner Award is made possible through the generosity of Alan and Carol Ann Olson.
