The Girl Guards and Dan Lyon

Old Firehouse Books is excited to welcome author and historian Dan Lyon to the store! Local history buffs won’t want to miss this chance to pick up a copy of Lyon’s new book, The Girl Guards of Wyoming: The Lost Women’s Militia. We invite you to join us for this presentation at the store on Tuesday, August 20th at 6:00pm. A signing will follow the presentation. This event is free and open to the public.

In the summer of 1890, an army of teenage women, with swords drawn and rifles at the ready, marched toward the state capitol to deliver a message to the governor and the nation: women want equal rights. The Girl Guards of Wyoming offers the definitive and evocative story of these forgotten women who defined the Equality State.

We hope you’ll join us for this event!
