Virtual Montana Conversation: Montana Towns Then, Now, and Always with Hal Stearns

The Belgrade Community Library hosts a virtual Montana Conversation “Montana Towns – Then, Now, and Always” with storyteller Hal Stearns on Thursday, August 6, 2020 at 6:00PM. The program will be held solely online. The presentation is free and open to the public. Advance registration is required in order to get the event
invitation via email.

From Sitting Bull to Custer, from Copper Kings to Wheeler and Mansfield, from Rankin to Cobell, and more. Under the microscope, a few leaders are great, some are famous, others fair at best. The past gives us many lessons. Whether politician, military commander, educator, chief, or coach, leadership is key. It is a mix of art and innovation, charisma and communication, brave or brash. Hal Stearns tells stories about Montana’s past leaders to start a discussion about Montana today.

An educator for 34 years, today Hal is an instructor for the University of Montana’s Lifelong Learning Institute and Humanities Montana. He has a particularly fond interest in sharing his passion for Montana and the West and education with community members, students, teachers and administrators. He has led tours coast to coast and lectured in over 40 states, Germany, England, Japan, Korea and Brazil.

This program is sponsored by the Belgrade Community Library Foundation and presented by Humanities Montana. Funding for the Montana Conversations program is provided by Humanities Montana through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Montana’s Cultural Trust, and private donations.
