The podcast Death, Sex and Moneyfocuses on conversation topics that many are scared of and don't want to discuss with their loved ones or friends. Host Anna Sale said many people reach out to her asking how to get people to open up about personal stuff, the way she does with guests on the show.

Sale said she realized she didn't really have an eloquent way to explain it. So she decided to write a book to help people have honest conversations.

"I wanted the book to be both a place where you can get some prompts for opening a conversation you feel like you need to have," she said. "But at a deeper level I wanted it to feel like, 'Oh I'm not the only one who had this feeling about my family.'"

The book features many Wyomingites including Al and Ann Simpson. Sale has gotten to know the two as a part-time Cody Resident. One other featured resident is Anpo Kuwa Win.

"I reached out to talk to her for my identity chapter. Just about her experience as an Indigenous woman, who's Lakota, but she lives on the Wind River Reservation and is around people who are [Northern] Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone and all sorts of different tribal backgrounds," said Sale.

Sale's first public in-person reading for the book will take place Tuesday, July 6 at 6 p.m. at the Cody Library.
