Senator Simpson Biography to Launch Sunday in Cody

Former U.S. Senator Alan Simpson

A biography about former U.S. Senator from Wyoming Al Simpson is set to be released this weekend in Cody. Sheridan Media's Ron Richter has more on the story.

Simpson's Chief of Staff and longtime friend Don Hardy has just released his new book, a biography titled Shooting from the Lip: the Life of Senator Al Simpson. The book will officially be released this Sunday at a special event at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center's Coe Auditorium.

Interim Public Relations Director for the Buffalo Bill Historical Center Marguerite House says that unbeknownst to many, Simpson kept a journal of his time in Congress.

House says that both the Author and the Senator will be on hand for the event.

The event is free and open to the public; however, House said that they ask when people check in, that they let the admission staff know that they are there for the Al Simpson book event. Once again, the Al Simpson biography book launch will be this Sunday, September 4th at 2 pm in the Buffalo Bill Historical Center's Coe Auditorium.
