Montana Historical Society “Pages in History” Book Program Sees Red

Perma Red, destined to become a Montana classic, will be the subject of the Montana Historical Society’s January “Pages in History? book program Thursday (Jan. 27) at 6:30 p.m. in Montana’s Museum across from the Capitol.
The new book by Debra Magpie Earling, who is a University of Montana professor and member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, has drawn rave reviews across the nation that already are putting her in the same class as famed Montana Indian writer James Welch.
The book is a beautifully written novel about a young woman’s flight from love in the 1940s in Montana, and a rise from poverty in a clash between two cultures.
Helena High School teacher Joe Anderson will lead the discussion of the book based on the expertise he has gained on it while teaching it to his classes.
To help set the mood for the discussion, the Old Medicine Singers will share traditional Indian music beginning at 6 p.m. in the Society lobby.
“This program has taught us all a lot about Montana history and culture, but it also has turned into a monthly gathering of friends who share a love of books and heritage. We hope people come whether they think they can participate or not,? Society Volunteer Coordinator Delight Sullivan said.
“Pages in History? is open to everyone. Those attending are encouraged to read the book so that they can more actively participate in the program, but that is not required. It is held the last Thursday of every month, and next month’s selection will be “Wide Open Town? by Myron Brinig.
