Hap Stuart "Cowboy Poetry" Reading and Book Signing

Thursday, September 20, 2018

Gillette native Paul “Hap” Stuart will give a poetry reading and sign copies of his new book, Cowboy Poetry, at the Campbell County Rockpile Museum on Thursday, Sept. 20th, at 6:30 p.m. Copies of the book will be available for sale that evening, and a limited number will be available at the Museum’s gift shop after the 20th. Hap's parents and grandparents homesteaded 40 miles south of Gillette, Wyoming in 1917 and 1918. His parents were married in 1930 and were in the ranching business. Hap was born in Gillette in 1934 and attended school for 10 years in Campbell County, Wyoming. After three years in the United States Army, he returned to manage his uncle's ranch. He was married to the former Ruby Rossi in Gillette on September 6, 1957. Hap’s main hobby is writing and performing cowboy poetry for the purpose of recording events of his life experiences. Please contact the Rockpile Museum at 307-682-5723 or with any questions.
