We salute emily m. danforth on the opening night of the film version of her celebrated debut novel and support Art House Cinema and Pub.
We think that short stories are awesome. Now's your chance to write one and maybe even see it published. This House of Books is sponsoring a writing contest for children and youth. The winning stories will appear in an anthology we will publish later this year.
The next great This House of Books employee ... might be you!
We're looking for someone with an entrepreneurial passion to take our beloved community-owned bookstore to the next level, making us more visible, more profitable, and a better resource for book lovers in Billings and beyond. No one gets into bookselling for the money, but if you love books and want a key role in growing a great community institution, we may have the perfect opportunity for you. If we don't find exactly the right person for this critical role, we won't hire, so please forward!
It’s hard to believe that another year has slipped by. So much has happened in the past year as we have continued to grow, to host author events, to form alliances with other downtown cultural businesses, to be recognized as the place to go for delicious (and sometimes adventurous) hot and cold tea, to become the downtown destination for tabletop games, and to develop into a hub for the Billings’ literary and art scene.
