BookTalk at BSC 2008 – As Far As the Eye Can See …

BookTalk at BSC is the library’s annual book discussion series.  You are invited to join us for lively discussions of three books about life on the high plains that we call home. 

Our theme for 2008 is “As Far As the Eye Can See …” 

In January, we will read a 1927 classic about the experiences of Norwegian immigrants in Dakota Territory.  In February, we will read a beautifully crafted story about life on the stark plains of eastern Colorado.  Finally, in March, we will wrap up with a memoir of childhood and early married life on ranches in north central Montana. 

BookTalk at BSC discussions are held at the BSC Library and are free and open to all.
