Speaker Dramatizes History of Women Authors

On March 23, the Bureau of Land Managment's Wyoming State Office will celebrate Women's History month by featuring speaker Dorene Ludwig. Her presentation, "Loveliness to Sell-The Lady Poets" will begin at 1:00 p.m. at 5353 Yellowstone Road. The program is free and open to the public.

Ludwig will use first person vignettes to bring to life early female authors. She portrays various women writers as she explains the meanings behind some of American literatures greatest works. Her characterizations of women are carefully researched and raise thought-provoking questions about the impact of women on the writing field.

Ludwig is the artistic director of the American Living History Theater in Greybull. She has appeared in one-woman productions before audiences coast to coast. Ludwig travels widely and has served as a trainer for NASA, the U.S. Army, the National Park Service and various other institutions.

“Loveliness to Sell” is presented by the Wyoming Humanities Council as part of its 2010 Humanities Forum. The Wyoming Humanities Council provides public humanities-based programs in partnership with local organizations and is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The BLM manages more land - 253 million acres - than any other Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The Bureau, with a budget of about $1 billion, also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's multiple-use mission is to sustain the health and productivity of the public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. The Bureau accomplishes this by managing such activities as outdoor recreation, livestock grazing, mineral development, and energy production, and by conserving natural, historical, cultural, and other resources on public lands.
