Summer Events for Kids: What's Bugging You?

Summer Events for Kids at This House of Books, your member-owned, independent bookstore & tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

The Event

In her charming and inimitable style, Marian Kirst will reveal the lovable aspects of insects and invertebrates on July 15 at 2 o’clock. So many of us grew up at least mildly afraid of bugs and spiders, but she treasures them. When she talks about them, her tireless enthusiasm about insects and, indeed, all of nature affects everyone around her. Moreover, she understands how important it is for human beings to make up our minds to get along with insects and spiders. Her message could hardly be more important to us if humans are to survive as a species. 

Marian is an outstanding teacher, one who fills those who get to know her with a profound appreciation for the life around us. Also, she'll bring bugs for us to look at.

The event is free and open to the public. The activities are geared for elementary students, but children younger and older will find them enjoyable and are welcome.


During the week, your best bet for finding a nearby parking space is to try one of the nearby parking garages. Park 3 near the corner of Second Ave N. and North 27th street is nearest, about two blocks from our door and featuring the marvelous mural of Billings History by Terri Porta.
