Although we weren’t able to get out to Missoula for last month’s ninth annual Montana Festival of the Book, program coordinator Judy Klein was kind enough to send us a recap—that’s her and HumanitiesMontana acting director Kim Anderson with the University of Montana’s mascot, Monte—the star of a brand new picture book called The Great Monte Mystery.

Authors who came to the three-day event included Thomas McGuane (pictured), Sherry Jones, Rick Bass, and Ripley Hugo; one of the highlights of the weekend was a staged group performance of “The Lady in Kicking Horse Resevoir,” a poem by Hugo’s late husband, Richard Hugo.
