 "Project Smoke"
by Steven Raichlen

Smoked Slaw

Makes 1 quart, enough to serve 4 to 6

1 small or 1/2 large green cabbage (about 1 pound), quartered and cored
1 small onion, peeled and quartered
2 carrots, trimmed and peeled
2 ribs celery, trimmed
1 apple, peeled, quartered, and cored
1/2 cup mayonnaise (preferably Hellmann's or Best Foods) or smoked mayonnaise
3 tablespoons cider vinegar, or to taste
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish (don't drain)
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds, or to taste
Coarse salt (sea or kosher) and freshly ground black pepper

1. set up your smoker following the manufacturer's instructions and preheat to 225 degrees F. Add the wood as specified by the manufacturer.
2. Thinly shred the cabbage, onion, carrots, celery, and apple on a mandoline, in a food processor fitted with a slicing or shredding disk, or with a chef's knife. Spread out the vegetables and apple in a thin layer in 2 aluminum foil pans.
3. Place the vegetables in their foil pans in the smoker and smoke until lightly bronzed with smoke, but still raw, 10 to 15 minutes. Do not overcook. Let the vegetables cool to room temperature. (the quickest way to smoke the slaw is in a hot-smoker, but you can certainly use a cold-smoker. In that case, increase the smoking time to 45 minutes. For an even smokier slaw, use smoked mayonnaise.)
4. While the vegetables are cooling, make the dressing: combine the mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar, horseradish, celery seeds, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl and whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
5. Stir the vegetables into the dressing. Correct the seasoning, adding salt or vinegar as desired; the slaw should be highly seasoned. Cover the slaw and refrigerate until serving. Try to serve within a couple of hours of mixing.

Reading & Book Signing for "Cloudshade" by Lori Howe
Wed June 15th 5:30-7:00pm


In every season, life on America's high plains is at once harsh and beautiful, liberating and isolated, welcoming and unforgiving. The poems of Cloudshade take us through those seasons, swinging wide a glassless window to life in the West--to antelope flowing seamless over dirt roads, boom and bust ghost towns, deep, glacial lakes ringed with glowing aspen trees, ice fishing by the Northern Lights, and as in "High Plains Solstice," live music on summer nights that
carves hot petals through our bodies in its ritual of tides and light; licks us open from the inside until we are night-blooming jasmine seduced by the moon.
Cloudshade is a book for everyone, from poetry lovers to those who don't usually read poems. If you've ever waited through five or six months of winter for the first signs of spring, stood outside to feel the first, long-awaited summer rains, caught the wood-smoke and cottonwood scent of fall, or stood on a frozen lake, listening to winter rumbling and heaving through the ice, these poems will carry you back to what is elemental and haunting about life on the high plains, as in "On the Ice," where "we wait, silent, hearing with our feet the seething of ultramarine blood, the twitching of bones, rumbles of omens and restless spirits. The ice stretches and heaves, cracking like gunshot, and beneath that, glints and gleamings of sound, like whales calling across the darkness."

  Stretching the truth causes problems for twelve-year-old Melvin Allen Burger, known to his friends as Booger, when he tries to earn money to replace his wrecked bike. It's the summer of 1957 and he needs a bike in order to spend time with his friends. Walking Mr. Finelli's dog causes plenty of problems for Booger and the neighbors. Things only get worse when he turns to babysitting mischievous twin boys to make money, especially when one of them thinks he can fly. When those jobs fail to earn him enough money, he resorts to baking which ends up in smoke. Booger makes one last attempt to make money by helping a fussy elderly widow named Mrs. Prescott with odd jobs around her house. He tries hard not to mess up. In the end, Booger must decide whether or not to tell the truth and risk losing his job and his last chance for a bike.

"Wyoming Revisited"
by Michael Amundson
Sat June 25th 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

   
         In "Wyoming Revisited," Michael A. Amundson uses the power of re-photography to show how landscapes across the state have endured over the last century. Three sets of photographs, the original black-and-white photographs taken by famed Wyoming photographer Joseph E. Stimson more than a century ago, repeat black-and-white images taken by Amundson in the 1980s, and a third view taken by the author in 2007-08 are accompanied by captions explaining the history and importance of each site as well as information on the process of repeat photographic fieldwork."
Book Signing for "Disgraced"
by Gwen Florio
Sat June 25th 1-3 pm

 
  A favor for a friend leads a reporter to a stunning story and life-altering decisions. Lola Wicks has buried some shattering experiences in Afghanistan deep within her psyche as she rebuilds her life as a reporter in Magpie, a small Montana town. During her furlough, she's taken her 5-year-old daughter, Maggie, and their border collie, Bub, on a Wyoming vacation while she ponders whether to marry Maggie's father, part-American Indian Sheriff Charles Laurendeau. Lola's Magpie reporter friend, Jan, has asked her to pick up her cousin Palomino Jones, who's just returning from Afghanistan, at the Casper airport. When a shot is fired, Lola hits the floor with Maggie. When the dust clears, she can't help smelling a story in the airport suicide. Why did Cody Dillon, a returning soldier from the same group as Pal, kill himself in such a public place? Returning Pal to her home, she finds Jan's cousin, who sports hacked-off hair and filthy clothes, uncommunicative and hostile and probably suffering from PTSD. Lola meets Pal's Shoshone neighbor, Delbert St. Clair, whose grandson Mike, Pal's childhood friend, was one of a local group including Cody who all enlisted and went to Afghanistan together. When two other members of the group nearly kill a man in a bar fight, Lola decides to interview the returning heroes and research their backgrounds. The story goes that Mike fell asleep on watch when their vehicle broke down and was killed by an insurgent whom the rest of the group shot to death. There are many versions of that story; are any of them near the truth? The locals, prejudiced against Native Americans, are all too ready to pronounce Mike guilty of dereliction and Lola of sluttish behavior. Ignoring Charlie's ever more urgent calls to come home, the reckless heroine resolves to find the truth even if she puts herself and her child in mortal danger
 
What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade. ~Gertrude Jekyll
