Book Discussion: A Million Acres: Montana Writers Reflect on Land and Open Space
On Veteran’s Day, Monday, November 11, at 5:00 PM, at Art House Cinema, This House of Books will co-host a discussion of A Million Acres: Montana Writers Reflect on Land and Open Space. Author-member Russell Rowland and photographer Alexis Bonogofsky will present the book and will be on hand to autograph copies. This book is sold as a fundraiser for the Montana Land Reliance.
In twenty powerful pieces of writing―essays, memoirs, short stories―the state's finest contemporary writers explore the plains, rivers, and mountains of Big Sky Country. They show us how natural beauty and hardship are two sides of the same coin, and how sometimes the only way to cure heartache is to visit the great outdoors.
From a hardscrabble upbringing to the pain of losing the family land, from death on a river to the awe of landing a big fish, from backcountry encounters with grizzly bears to an out-of-stater's happiness at making Montana her home, A Million Acres offers a wonderfully diverse range of experiences and perspectives. Framing these words are twenty-eight breathtaking photographs that render these open spaces in gorgeous color.
The book will be available at the bookstore and at Art House starting on the day of the event.
