MONTANA WOMEN WRITERS - TUESDAY, MARCH 19 AT 6:30 PM AT THE LIBRARY

with Caroline Patterson author, teacher at the University of Montana
Patterson provides an hour-long survey of Montana women writers, from early Native American writers through homesteaders and settlers (Mary Ronan and Nannie Alderson) into the mining days (Mary MacLane of Butte) and the progressive era of Montana (Frieda Fliegelman and Grace Stone Coates). Patterson finishes with a survey of the contemporary women poets, memoirists, and fiction writers who have helped to reinterpret and re-envision the American West (Judy Blunt, Sandra Alcosser, Melissa Kwansy, Maile Meloy, Deirdre McNamer, and Tami Haaland). To conclude, Patterson asks the audience to volunteer stories about remarkable women they have known: homesteaders, teachers, ranchers, rodeo riders, and homemakers.
