Sometimes, children may have a difficult time reading, and reading to a dog can bring a feeling of non-judgment, which makes reading a more relaxing and fun experience. With bringing the Intermountain Therapy dogs here, it creates that relaxed feeling in a safe and comfortable environment. READ to a Dog is an affiliate program of Reading Education Assistance Dogs® of Intermountain Therapy Animals of Salt Lake City, Utah. We thankfully recognize the Otto and Yvonne Mansfield Endowment at St. Vincent Healthcare Foundation for providing the funding for this program. The Mansfields had a great love of animals and would be very pleased to support READ. We would also like to thank the Billings Public Library Foundation for coordinating the efforts of making this gift possible.

    July 17, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Community Room

    HERO: DOROTHY GALE. VILLAIN: THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST. There’s a reason that the Wicked Witch placed so high on The American Film Institute’s list of great villains. She not only has some of the best lines in cinema history, but also a look that defined evil witches for many children since this film’s release. The flying monkeys didn’t hurt, either. That Dorothy is equally memorable for her wistfulness, courage and ability to inspire friendship wherever she goes is a testament to finding heroism in everyday virtues. (NR, 1939)

The new novel, which will be released July 28, centers on the annual celebration of a small eastern Montana town that is trying to find its way amid the changes wrought by the Bakken oil play. “The more things change—you know how this one goes. But nothing’s staying the same in Grandview, the fictional eastern Montana town in Craig Lancaster’s bittersweet new novel. Lancaster writes with great affection for small towns, but never lets that affection cloud the hard fact that their homey façade often masks troubles rivaling anything bubbling up from the oil patch.”—Gwen Florio, author of MONTANA and DAKOTA. The event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served, and signed copies of the book will be available for sale.
