Join us for an evening with Scott Hibbard reading from Beyond the Rio Gila. "In 1846, the Mexican-American War cast together Latter-day Saints fleeing persecution and the U.S. Army on a desperate mission to capture California. The Mormon Battalion-including two pregnant laundresses-must march two thousand miles. Among the army's First Dragoons, Moses Cole, a Virginia farm boy running from his abusive father, grows to manhood under the mentorship of a tormented alcoholic and former professor. Among the Mormons, Orson Everett battles personal devils yet teaches his colorful followers to work for their brethren with God in their hearts. On such a journey, some will thrive, some will perish, all will be transformed. This deeply researched depiction of the U.S. military's longest march, told in evocative prose, brings a little known yet uniquely American story to life."

Scott G. Hibbard is a fourth generation Montanan where his family has owned and operated a cattle and sheep ranch for over one-hundred years. Scott attended public school in Helena and received a B.A. in English Literature from Williams College and two graduate degrees, an M.F.A in Creative Writing and an M.B.A., from the University of Montana. He worked for the family ranch for a number of years, and while continuing his involvement with the ranch he provided management and consulting services to other ranches. He lives near Helena, Montana.
Green Door Gallery announces a call for art: 

Ex Libris:  Bookplate Art 

A bookplate, or ex libris is a small print for pasting inside the cover of a book to express ownership. By the late 19th century bookplates had developed into a highly imaginative form of miniature art. The bookplate functions as a mark of possession; however, owners and artists consider the bookplate to be a vehicle for self-expression.
For centuries, artists including Albert Durer, Kate Greenaway, Marc Chagall, Aubrey Beardsley, M. C. Escher, and others have been commissioned to create Ex LIBRIS plates for those who treasured their books.
