Scene @ Montana Festival of the Book


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.
