Description:
Shakespeare in Montana: Big Sky Country’s Love Affair with the World’s Most Famous Writer

Dr. Gretchen Minton, MSU English Professor, will trace Shakespeare's sojourns in a place that he never imagined: Montana. From the first moment that mountain men carried books to the Rocky Mountain West, Shakespeare was part of the story. Shakespeare's works made themselves at home with pioneers and miners, with suffragette women and educators, performers in opera houses and parks. The story of Montana's love affair with the famous English writer reflects upon our diverse histories, showing how Shakespeare has given Montanans the language and the art to reflect upon their own sense of place. The topics covered in this presentation will focus especially on Montana's Shakespeare stories in and around Great Falls. Read more about Dr. Minton on her MSU website.
