Montana Storytelling Roundup

I was privileged to be invited to participate in the Montana Storytelling Roundup in Cut Bank, MT recently. I was thrilled, not only because I met many wonderful musicians, artists and storytellers, but also because Cut Bank is where my rodeo-riding grandmother grew up.

Cut Bank lies 60 miles west of Glacier National Park and often has the distinction of having the coldest temperatures in the nation during the winter.

I gave presentations on the importance of reading and writing in the high school and middle school English classes, and did readings from my book, Cowgirl Dreams, at the Hutterite Colony and Babb elementary schools, along with musician-storyteller Jack Gladstone and Glacier Park Ranger Pat Hagen.

I had a great time there and it was a wonderful excuse to visit my home state once again!
