Ivan Doig Archive - Big Sky Country State Fair Exhibit 2017
On July 19-23, 2017 the MSU Library hosted "Ivan Doig: Voices & Vistas,” an interactive exhibit at the Gallatin County Fair Grounds in Bozeman, Montana during the Big Sky Country State Fair. This exhibit gave fair-goers the opportunity to learn more about Montana through Ivan Doig’s life and works by providing a window into this beloved Montana author’s writing life through highlights from the Ivan Doig Archive. With the help of partners such as the Yellowstone Writing Project, Country Bookshelf, and Bozeman Public Library the exhibit featured a daily schedule of activities for all ages including writing marathons, story reading and telling, and more.
"Tell Us Your Montana Story"
This competition was inspired by the Montana writer, Ivan Doig, who told his own story and the story of so many other Montanans with great beauty, honesty and humor. Writers of all ages shared their unique Montana stories with great eloquence and emotion. The Yellowstone Writing Project judged each entry.
