SHERIDAN — Sheridan College, the Ucross Foundation and the Student Veterans of America at Sheridan College will welcome author and Iraqi War veteran Kevin Powers for a discussion and book signing of his PEN/Hemingway award-winning novel, “The Yellow Birds,” at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Whitney Academic Center. 

The reading is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities Grant: Creating Humanities Communities along the Hemingway Highway, a multi-year initiative that explores Hemingway’s continuing relevance, both in contemporary literature and as an icon.

Sheridan College partners in this NEH Grant include the Wyoming Humanities Council, Wyoming Institute for Humanities Research and Ucross Foundation, where Powers will be a writer-in-residence. Sheridan College’s Chapter of the Student Veterans of America will co-sponsor this event and provide up to 30 complimentary copies of Powers’ book to veterans who attend.

The event will take place in room W153 of the Whitney Academic Center at Sheridan College, located at 1 Whitney Way.
