Wednesday, October 11: Montanan Amy Pearson joins us for a reading from her new book of poetry, 100 Days of Solitude, based on her time spent in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. 7pm.
Amy Pearson is a writer, teacher, photographer, and wilderness advocate. She grew up on the plains of MT and earned a Ph.D. in organizational communication from Arizona State University. After finishing her formal education, she hit the road to Asia for a few years, but found herself missing the Rocky Mountains where she’d spent five seasons working in Glacier National Park. She came home and spent a winter working at the Izaak Walton Inn and a summer working at Jumbo Lookout for the Spotted Bear Ranger District. She currently works as a Professor of Humanities at Flathead Valley Community College and as a fire lookout for the Forest Service.
