Tuesday July 17: Local authors Mark Gibbons, Aaron Parrett, Roger Dunsmore, Sheryl Noethe, Robert Lee, and Marylor Wilson join us for readings from Moving On: The Last Poems of Ed Lahey. 2pm.
Ed Lahey (1936-2011) achieved renown as one of Montana's finest poets. His poetry reflects a deep commitment to Butte, to Montana, to the working class, and to an intellectual tradition that reaches back to the ancient Greeks. His books The Blind Horses and Birds of a Feather received much critical acclaim, leading to his Montana Governor's Arts Award in 2008.
