"Shooting From the Lip," a biography of former Wyoming U.S. senator Alan Simpson that was written by Red Lodge author Donald Loren Hardy, has received another award.
It was scheduled to be awarded first place in the biography/autobiography category Saturday from the Wyoming Historical Society at a luncheon in Encampment.
Simpson was scheduled to make an appearance at the luncheon.
In the spring, the biography won a silver medal in the Independent Publisher Book Awards, known as the IPPYs. More than 5,000 books were submitted for the awards.
Hardy, a former news director at Billings’ KULR-8 TV, was Simpson’s longtime chief of staff.
