Bringing successful authors and illustrators to the children of Bozeman!

2013 Testimonials:

Henry Cole, author and illustrator

“Usually I’m saying ‘Great to be home!’ after I’ve been away, but THIS time it was ‘wish I was back in Bozeman!’ What great people, so friendly and hospitable… centered around a magnificent library… and surrounded by great scenery. Thank you for hosting me for a wonderful two (and too brief) days.”
