For the eighth year, Helena College is a participating partner in the annual Big Read.  This year’s selection is The Round House by Louise Erdrich.  The book tells the suspenseful tale of a 13-year-old boy’s investigation and desire for revenge following the brutal attack on his mother that leaves his father, a tribal judge, helpless in his pursuit to bring the perpetrator to justice.

Free copies of the book are available at the Helena College Library, along with a full schedule of events around the county.  Helena College is hosting two events in October.  Montana historian Laura Ferguson will give a lecture in the Student Center titled Resilience: Stories of Montana’s Native American Women on Thursday October 5 at 7:00 p.m. and the Helena College Library will lead a book discussion on Tuesday October 24 at 5:30 p.m.

The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
