Headlines from August 2017

Will Arbery set Heroes of the Fourth Turning on August 19, 2017, “Two days before the solar eclipse. One week after the Charlottesville riot.” in “a town of 7,000 in western Wyoming” that is home to a college very much like Wyoming Catholic College in Lander, WY. Lander was in the path of totality for the 2017 solar eclipse. The following are headlines from the two weeks before the play takes place, from both the New York Times and the Riverton Ranger, a local newspaper to the Lander area. We have linked to the New York Times articles; The Riverton Ranger doesn’t have an archive directly available; you can access through NewsBank at the DC Public Library or another online database.
