Author Discussion: Writing the Little Bighorn

Tim Lehman will lead a discussion about the Battle of Little Bighorn at This House of Books, your member-owned, independent bookstore & tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

Join us on Wednesday, June 19, at 6:00 when we commemorate the 143rd anniversary of the Battle of the Little Bighorn. How does the battle—and the monument—fit with the larger narrative of how history shapes identity, both regionally and nationally? And why do we need another book for a topic so thoroughly discussed, meticulously examined, and hotly debated? 

Tim Lehman, RMC Professor of History and member-owner at This House of Books, will address how and why he tackled the project of writing about such a momentous and controversial event for his book, Bloodshed at Little Bighorn.

Bloodshed at Little Bighorn is available at the store. Stop by or call us at (406) 534-1133 for your copy.
