We have something special for May's Poetry Open Mic night. Students of high school age will share the creative work they developed during the I Am Montana project. We're hoping to have several readers from Senior High, and Ashley Warren's co-teacher from Free Verse plans to read some poems on behalf of the youth at the Youth Services Center, the local juvenile detention facility here in Billings.

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.
