August 27, 2014 (Helena, MT)—The Lewis & Clark Library Foundation is pleased to present “Revising the Western Narrative,” with author Russell Rowland as part of the Stephen Ambrose Memorial Lecture Series on Tuesday, September 23rd at 7PM.

Russell Rowland was born in Bozeman, Montana, in 1957. His first novel, In Open Spaces, made the San Francisco Chronicle bestseller list and was named among the "Best of the West 2002" by the Salt Lake City Tribune. Rowland's second novel, The Watershed Years, also garnered rave reviews and was a finalist for the High Plains Book Award for fiction. His third novel, High and Inside, tells the story of a former Red Sox pitcher who moves to Bozeman, Montana to try to rebuild a shattered life.
Rowland lives in his home town of Billings, where he teaches at MSU-Billings and offers private editing consultation. He has taught at Boston University and was a writer in residence at St. Mary's College. Book signing and reception will follow the lecture.

The Lewis & Clark Library Foundation was established in 1978 to support the Lewis & Clark Library system, beyond what tax monies can provide. In times of increasing demand for information in all formats, private support is critical to maintaining excellent library services. It is the goal of the Foundation Board of Directors, through the caring and generosity of like-minded citizens, to maintain long-term financial support for the public library.
