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.

First Fridays: Swinging Through American History with Mark Matthews

Butte-Silver Bow Public Library will continue their First Fridays series on December 7th at noon with guest speaker, Mark Mathews.  His talk is entitled “Swinging through American History.”  Matthews will take you back to the ballrooms, taverns, juke joints, honky tonks and dance emporiums of the past as he explains the manner in which American dancing evolved with certain social changes–and, how certain dances stimulated changes in American social life. The spectrum of historic dances runs from the colonial English country dance to the French quadrille to the American square dance and the waltz; plus modern movements such as the one-steps, the Charleston, Lindy hop, mambo, twist and disco. Mark will even get the more adventurous audiences out of their chairs and onto their feet to experience the joy of movement. Brought to you with a grant from Humanities...
