One week later on Nov. 9, Monek is pleased to offer An Evening with Alexandra Fuller—author of The Legend of Colton H. Bryant, which is Marietta College’s 2011 Common Reading.
Fuller will speak on her work as a non-fiction author and the writing of the book. The Legend of Colton H. Bryant is an unforgettable true story of a boy who comes of age in the oil fields and open plains of Wyoming; a heartrending account of the human spirit that lays bare where it is that wisdom truly resides.
The moving, tough, and in many ways quintessentially American story of Colton H. Bryant’s life could not be told without also telling of the land that grew him, the beautiful and somehow tragic Wyoming.
Fuller’s appearance is also in conjunction with the College’s annual theme of Energy & Environment, and Marietta officials plan to have a number of other events connected with the theme throughout 2011-12.
