Former Meeker woman has successful book signing, enjoys happy homecoming

Author Diane Les Becquets signs a copy of her new novel, “Breaking Wild,” at a book signing held on Saturday at the Meeker Public Library.  Les Becquets spent several years as a child in the Meeker/Rio Blanco County area, and it was because of this background, as well as her general outdoor lifestyle in northwest Colorado—she hiked, camped, snowshoed, and hunted—that Les Becquets made this area the setting of the novel’s story. “After my many experiences in northwest Colorado, I knew I wanted the story to be set there,” she said.

MEEKER I On Saturday, about 45 people attended a book signing by former Meeker resident Diane Les Becquets for her latest novel “Breaking Wild” at Meeker Public Library. The event was sponsored by Les Becquets’ publisher (Berkley, Penguin Random House).
