First Fridays: Butte The Original

We continue our First Fridays series on April 5th at noon with a screening of the documentary, Butte: The Original.  Film makers Dick Maney and BJ McKenzie will be there to answer questions. “Butte: the Original” is a film about real events and real people, so it is by definition a documentary. But his film has a unique approach—a little like the community it is about. Tom Satterly, for example, appears at the start of the film wearing a miner’s slicker and carrying a “turkey” and a shovel.

Memoir writing

Starting February 7th, BSBPL will host a Life Writing Group on Thursdays from 1:30 to 3:30.  This initial meeting will last about 8 weeks, with a chance it may continue if there is interest.  This informed group will meet to share stories and practice writing.  You don’t have to be a great or even good writer to work on your memories and family history–you just have to be interested in chronicling these valuable stories for all time. This event is free and open to the public.  No registration required.  You are not required to attend every meeting.  Just bring pen and paper.  For more information, call Carol Eaglefeathers at 406-498-1475.
