The Billings Public Library One Book Billings program seeks to provide a forum for library patrons to read and discuss in small groups regional authors and/or literary works which examine and reflect life on the High Plains, especially Montana.
The One Book Billings program is sponsored by a grant from Bernard Rose through the Billings Public Library Foundation. This series is offered in memory of Marge McArthur, who had previously co-sponsored One Book Billings. Discussion groups come together five times a year (every other month from September to May) to discuss the same book.
One Book Billings is here! The first book, Counting Coup by Larry Colton, is now available for curbside pick-up from the Billings Public Library. This year, the book discussions will take place through Zoom November 9th -12th.
