10/20/08: The Last Cowgirl

Jana Richman

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The Utah Humanities Book Festival opens Wednesday, so we're using it as an excuse to sit down with Utah writer Jana Richman. Her debut novel is called The Last Cowgirl, and it follows Dickie Sinfield back to the family ranch she had fled 30 years ago. Richman joins us to talk about the politics and the desolate landscape of the West desert and about finding your way back home.

  • Jana Richman will speak as part of the Utah Humanities Book Festival. The Festival runs next Wednesday, October 22 through Saturday, October 25, and Richman will speak Saturday at 11:00 a.m. For full details, click here or call 801-359-9670.
