On July 9th at 2PM, the Library will host, “Afternoon with the Author Russell Rowland.” Russell Rowland was born and raised in Montana and has published three novels, In Open Spaces, The Watershed Years and High and Inside.

His most recent book, Fifty-Six Counties: A Montana Journey, is the result of his travels to every county in Montana, interviewing people around the state about the history, and about what’s happening now. Mr. Rowland lives in Billings, where he teaches and consults with other writers.
