“Continental Divide” book tour and reading by author Alex Myers.
March 14, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We regret to announce that the Alex Myers event in Cody this Saturday, and all other stops on the CONTINENTAL DIVIDE book tour, have been postponed. We hope to bring Myers back to Wyoming after the pandemic passes.
We’re delighted to announce that Myers will present Continental Divide at a free, public event in Cody from 3 – 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 14, at the Cody public library (1500 Heart Mountain St.).
Continental Divide tells the story of Ron Bancroft, a newly out transgender student at Harvard who, after being cut off from his family, decides to venture West and live as a “real man.”
Bancroft hops on a Greyhound and ends up in Cody, Wyoming, where he finds work on a dude ranch and at a U.S. Forest Service ranger station. He also finds (mis)adventures, danger, and romance.
The coming-of-age story explores ideas of gender and masculinity in the West, the experience of navigating different places and cultures as a transgender person, and is accessible for young adults and up. It is based, in part, on Myers’ own real-life experience in Wyoming, where he lived and worked for a summer in 1997.
Myers will present the book and host a Q&A at the event.
I hope you can join us.
