Allen Jones, who owns Bangtail Press, had the great idea of publishing three books -- one with Bozeman area writers, one with Livingston, one with Missoula. This week were the celebrations. I am proud to be in the Bozeman book, along with writers I so admire, e.g. David Quammen. The event in Livingston last night was attended by such a crowd that people were packed in a large space standing. (The new Elk River Books is now 2 big floors, nice wood, very charming.) It was catered by a favorite place of mine with pulled pork sandwiches and slaw Almost everyone read, including Tim Cahill, John Clayton, & Scott McMillion; Walter Kirn made up a story while waiting for his turn. I was struck by how funny so many pieces were. This was the kind of night I really enjoy.

Come if you can...Oct. 1 reading at Country Bookshelf, 28 W. Main St., Bozeman.
I will discuss my new book, Your Soul at a Crossroads ~ with steps you can take not to lose it. This book is part memoir and part depth guide to finding the right path in relationships, work, health, and nature. Exercises enable you to find your inner wisdom and personal meaning. The book also contains chapters on dreams, rebirth symbols, & myths. This is Valerie's 10th book. The beautiful Country Bookshelf is Montana's largest independent bookstore, located at 28 W. Main in Bozeman.
