Aaron Parrett - Literary Butte

  • Shakespeare & Co. 103 S 3rd St W Missoula, MT 59801 USA (map)

Sunday, March 15th: History. Aaron Parrett reads from his new book Literary Butte: A History in Novels & Film. 4 pm.

Known worldwide as the "Richest Hill on Earth," Butte, Montana, lured immigrants from every part of the world to sweat in the copper mines that powered American in its Gilded Age. Dozens of writers celebrated this "wide-open town" with impassioned novels of the rugged souls who braved the western frontier at the edge of the Continental Divide. They wrote of the opulence of success and the agony of broken dreams. They cataloged the clash between labor and capital as Butte boomed from a crude village of mules and men to prestige as Montana's biggest city with towering buildings of brick and iron. In Literary Butte, award-winning author Aaron Parrett surveys the wealth of literature that has come from this town that calls itself "Butte, America."
