Professor Emerita of Educational Studies at the University of Utah Florence Shepard will read from and sign her new memoir, Sometimes Creek.

Sometimes Creek, A Wyoming Memoir
is the story of Shepard's childhood on a sheep ranch and life as a wife, mother, teacher and environmentalist. Spanning the twentieth century, it recapitulates the life of a daughter of Italian immigrants who came to Wyoming to make a new life.

Shepard taught educational, environmental and feminist studies at the University of Utah. She has published her personal narratives in journals and anthologies and a book, Ecotone, and edited and published Paul Shepard’s posthumous books including Coming Home to the Pleistocene. She is the proud matriarch of four children, seven grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. She lives in a cabin in Wyoming’s Hoback Basin for much of the year and winters in Salt Lake City.
