Produced and Hosted by Barbara Newman Saturday, March 14, 2015 at 7:00 PM Followed by a Q&A Amy Hale-Auker, WILLA award winning writer, ranch woman and treasured speaker, takes us on a journey where the wind, the rain, the sun, and the grass are never taken for granted. Inspired by the land, the work, and her bold cowgirl spirit, The Cowgirl's Call: Writing and Riding shares the raw depth and breadth of ranch life and includes storytelling, readings and cowgirl slam poetry interwoven with film, photography and music. Amy says, "Sleeping wrapped in wool and canvas and the ink-black night, directly on the ground, for several nights at a time, bathing in wood smoke and sweat and work, creates an appreciation for this planet and its delicate balance." The beauty is that this deep awareness lends itself to showing up at the page.
