2020 CASPER COLLEGE HUMANITIES FESTIVAL
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

“What happens when a writer tells an utterly true story using devices from the fiction-writer’s toolbox? It’s a technique pioneered in the first modern true crime, a “nonfiction novel” called “In Cold Blood.” An Edgar nominated crime writer—and Wyoming native—explores the entangled histories of true-crime books and literary nonfiction, up to and including his own narrative writing as a Denver Post journalist and author of two bestselling, true accounts about wicked Wyoming crimes.”  —2020 Casper College Humanities Festival program

Ron’s lecture will be part of the three-day academic symposium, “Mystery, Mayhem, and Madness,” exploring those themes in literature, fine arts, anthropology, music, and social sciences.

Ron will also participate in a Casper College book club gathering at the campus’s Goodstein Library at Noon on Thursday, February 19. Their book will be his 2019 true crime, “Alice & Gerald: A Homicidal Love Story.”
