A Wyoming Conversation Program
A Changing Wyoming

The Wyoming Council for the Humanities will be presenting a series of programs entitled, “A Wyoming Conversation” January through June this year. A Wyoming Conversation is a statewide discussion program in partnership with Wyoming Public Radio, Wyoming Public Television, the Wyoming Community Foundation, and the University of Wyoming American Studies Program.
Wyoming Public Radio's evening show, Wyoming Today, will air monthly interviews on topics gleaned from last year's Community Conversations, the council's series of public meeting held around the state.
