Writer Rebecca Solnit maps Laramie and then occupies the world

Yup’ik Elder Esther Green occupies the river

Read this beautiful essay by California writer Rebecca Solnit on the CBS News site. You may remember Rebecca from her residency at the University of Wyoming creative writing program earlier this year. She and her students conducted a community mapping project, “Laramie: A Gem City Atlas,” with the results exhibited at the UW Art Museum in May and June. They were occupying Laramie before Occupy Laramie sprang up this fall. Read a Casper Star-Tribune story about the community mapping project here.
