Book Launch Party with Richard Fifield
Montana Women Tell Their Stories In New Anthology
Longtime memoir instructor and novelist Richard Fifield of Missoula is curating the anthology, entitled “We Leave The Flowers Where They Are,” named after a line in the single poem included in the book. Fifield is the author of The Flood Girls (Simon & Schuster, 2016) and The Small Crimes Of Tiffany Templeton (Penguin, Spring 2020).
A portion of the book’s proceeds will benefit two nonprofit organizations — Zootown Arts Community Center (ZACC), an arts nonprofit based in Missoula, and Humanities Montana, a nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) with offices around the state.
Six bookstores known for their community involvement will exclusively sell the book at their retail locations- Cassiopeia Books of Great Falls has been selected as one of the retailers.
The Great Falls Public Library will be host to the book launching event for We Leave The Flowers Where They Grow. Richard Fifeild, along with some of the authors featured in the anthology, will be sharing stories and readings. Books will be available to purchase, and snacks and music will be part of the evening’s entertainment.
