Hemingway in Wyoming-Montana - July 17-23, 2022


Note: PERSONAL TRANSPORTATION IS NEEDED DURING THE CONFERENCE. The shuttle buses intended to be used during the conference were sold due to the COVID-19 epidemic. We are exploring, with little luck so far, the few bus options that remain in the area. We currently suggest you drive to the conference or fly into Billings or Sheridan and rent a car. (See Travel Options.)
Having your own car (or rental) will allow you to go at your own pace, stopping to visit museums, hike, fish, raft, watch wildlife, attend rodeos, visit Yellowstone, etc. You can also consider ride-sharing with others if desired.
