Event: True Stories of Montana Women

True Stories of Montana Women at This House of Books, your member-owned, independent bookstore & tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

On Tuesday, October 8, from 5:30 to 7:00, This House of Books presents We Leave the Flowers Where They Are, an anthology of work by 41 contemporary Montana women. This book represents the voices of writers with stories that demand to be told. The editor is novelist Richard Fifield. 

Part of the proceeds from the sale of this book goes to Humanities Montana. "At Humanities Montana, we work to ensure everyone's story is heard, including those who have been historically under-represented,” says Kim Anderson, director of programs and grants. “We applaud everyone involved in this project that lifts up the voices of contemporary Montana women."

The ultimate goal of the anthology is to reach out to every single public library in Montana and bring authors and local women’s resources to each and every town. Every woman has a story, and it is the intent of this project to encourage every town to support and cultivate their voices.

Please join us for an evening featuring authors Leisa Greene, Jane Peterson, Jenn Ewan, Chelsia Rice, Jessica Spears, and Jain Walsh. Our local resource will be Dr. Jennifer Lynn, professor of Women's And Gender Studies from MSUB. 

Call 406-534-1133 today to reserve your copy of the book.
