Just lined this one up last night:
I’ll be at Hastings in Billings, 1603 Grand Ave., on Saturday, Dec. 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. If you’re around and doing some Christmas shopping, please drop by.
A couple more that are imminent:
Today (Dec. 5), I’ll be at the Shrine Auditorium in Billings from noon to 5 p.m. for the Writers Roundup, part of the Festival of Trees fundraiser. The Shrine is at 1125 Broadwater. If you love books — and especially inscribed books — this is the place to be. The lineup includes Marion Cadwell, Cara Chamberlain, Fred DeFauw, Hap Gilliland, Barbara Graham, Tami Haaland, Sue Hart, Brooke Jennings, Craig Johnson, Janet Muirhead Hill, Harley O’Donnell, Bernie Quetchenbach, Lela and Harry Schlitz and Dick Wheeler. Sale proceeds benefit Sigma Tau Delta at Montana State Billings, and go to support textbook scholarships for English majors, the annual outstanding English major award, a campus poetry contest, conference attendance and other academic activities. It’s an excellent opportunity to pick up some Christmas gifts and support literature, language and writing.
And tomorrow (Dec. 6), I’ll be at the Hastings in Great Falls, 726 10th Ave. South, from 1 to 4 p.m. for a signing. My dad, who grew up around Great Falls, is making the trip with me, which will be fun for both of us.
