Montana Festival of the Book
Kim Anderson, Director, Montana Center for the Book, and Samantha Dwyer, Program Officer, Humanities Montana present Gather Round, a humanities toolkit designed for the Montana Center for the Book. The toolkit has everything needed to inspire discussions about home, migration, technology and nature, including the anthology HEARTH by Susan O’Connor and Annick Smith. In this event we invite anyone to explore and reflect on a sense of self and place through conversations with friends and neighbors using the games in the toolkit.

“[A] remarkable new collection . . . ‘We live within a blaze of transience
both inevitable and complete,’ writes Jane Hirshfield.
Hearth captures both the evanescence of that blaze and its enduring power to heal us.”
