Diana Gabaldon, author of the “Outlander” se-
ries, spoke in Laramie on July 6 at the University of Wyoming. Gabaldon’s talk was in conjunction with the Ninth International Scott Conference “Walter Scott: Sheriff and Outlaw.” This event was cosponsored by UW Libraries, University Bookstore, College of Arts and Sci- ences Department of English, and the Albany County Public Library. According to her website, Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-best- selling Outlander novels including “Outlander,” “Dragonfly in Amber,” “Voyager,” “Drums of Autumn,” The Fiery Cross,” “A Breath of Snow and Ashes,” and “An Echo in the Bone.” The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes a companion volume, “The Outlandish Companion,” which provides details on the settings, background, characters, re- search, and writing of the novels. Gabaldon has also written several books in a sub-series featur- ing Lord John Grey: “Lord John and the Private Matter,” “Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade,” and “Lord John and the Hands of the Devil.” Gabaldon is presently working on the fourth Lord John novel, and the eighth book in the Outlander series. In addition, she is working on a contemporary mystery series, set in Phoenix, and has written Highly Scholarly Introductions to recent Modern Library editions of Sir Walter Scott’s Ivanhoe and Thomas Paine’s Common Sense.
