The program “Words to Stir the Soul” is our fall “kick-off” event, spotlighting some of the region’s best writing and providing a unique opportunity for both readers and attendees to deepen their appreciation of the region in which we live.

Of all the people who feel connected to and committed to Western places, individuals who are willing to run for and hold public office are surely leaders in that terrain. So this year’s event will have a special theme – “Scholars and Civil Servants.” We are inviting current, former, and hopeful public officials to share their love for the West through literature, as well as scholars whose love for the west is shown through their teachings.

The program generally runs about an hour and a half and offers an eclectic, interesting, lively, and often enchanting listening experience. Being “read aloud to” is as wonderful, comforting, and treasured an experience for adults as it is for children.
