2014 festival of the book

James Welch, Annie Proulx, Richard Ford, Pam Houston, James Lee Burke, Rick Bass, Mary Clearman Blew, Ivan Doig, William Kittredge, Annick Smith....

These are just some of the writers brought to you by the Humanities Montana Festival of the Book over the past fifteen years.

We need your help to keep the tradition going. Since some of our funders cannot continue their support, we must depend upon donations from readers and writers throughout the Northwest.

Any amount is appreciated—and we can’t thank you enough! Hope to see you October 9-11 in Missoula!
