Wyoming Humanities launches new statewide program, Pronghorn Reads

If you made a resolution this year to try something new or to expand your horizons or even just to work on reading a bit more in 2024, then Wyoming Humanities has a new program for you.

Free and open to adults and students, Pronghorn Reads encourages all Wyomingites to read one book each month. Prizes will be awarded during the year, and anyone who completes all twelve months of reading will be entered into a drawing for a grand prize.  

Additionally, every Pronghorn Reads participant will receive a small gift from Wyoming Humanities.

“Reading is one of those activities we can do almost any time and having a challenge every month takes us on a reading journey,” said Lucas Fralick, program coordinator for Wyoming Humanities. “The prizes along the way add something extra to the joy of finding a new book to savor.”

Each month will provide a different theme or challenge. In January, participants are asked to read a book borrowed from your local library. Books can be print, digital, or even an audiobook. After finishing a book, readers add the details to a simple list of their yearly books.

To sign up for Pronghorn Reads, simply complete the brief form at https://www.thinkwy.org/initiatives/pronghorn-reads. There, readers will receive additional information about monthly themes, program information, as well as a chance to share their thoughts about the works that they’ve read.

This program is presented as part of the Wyoming Center for the Book, a part of Wyoming Humanities.
