Patty Limerick, "Scouting for a Region: Ivan Doig's Wisdom as a Guide to Resilience"
- Thursday, September 14, 2017 from 5:15pm to 7:00pm
Beginning in 1978 with the publication of his memoir This House of Sky, Ivan Doig went on to write over a dozen more books of memoir and fiction, most set in the Montana he knew so well. His work is beloved by readers of western literature and in 2007 earned him the Wallace Stegner Award, which recognizes individuals who have “made a sustained contribution to the cultural identity of the West.”
As part of the symposium Doig Country: Imagining Montana and the West, the featured speaker of the evening is Patricia Limerick, Director of the Center of the American West at the University of Colorado. A reception starting at 5:15, with the lecture starting at 6:00. Please reserve your seat by visiting http://ivandoig.montana.edu/symposium-2017/doig-symposium-registration.html.
