The Bookstore Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Please join Saturday, April 27th for day of books, memories and fun. We will be Celebrating the 11th annual Independent Bookstore Day, the 40th Anniversary of The Bookstore and author Dave Carty. Dave will be signing copies of his new novel "Red is the Fastest Color".

Forty years ago on May 1st, 1984 The Bookstore opened its doors!!! Cathy Weber, Art Maker, moved her Art Gallery and Studio into the back of The Bookstore on October 14th of 1988. Debbie Sporich joined the team on June 1st, 1991 and bought the Bookstore on March 1, 1992. Weber and Sporich formed a partnership buying the building in 1999. And the rest as they say is history.

The celebration on the 27th will begin and 9:00 a.m. and continue throughout the day. We will be looking back at 1984 where it all began for The Bookstore. There will be drawings for door prizes, light refreshments, music provided by the Dillon Junior Fiddlers and Dave Carty will be signing copies of his book from 1:00-3:00. As always there will be books galore and so much more.

This party is a celebration of all of you and the years we have shared together. I live my dream everyday and thank you for being the reason The Bookstore has been part of this amazing community for 40 years.

We look forward to seeing you and hope you will share your memories of The Bookstore through the years with us.

Dave Carty's novel Red is the Fastest Color is set against the backdrop of Montana this book is complex, heart warming and heart wrenching. Carty gives us a compelling tale of love and loss, of real people living with real problems as they maneuver through the twisty path of existence, giving us joy and sorrow. This book is insightful with vivid descriptions and careful character development. Red is the Fastest Color is a quiet story about one man's struggle with loneliness, the joy he finds in friendship and ultimately the profound sorrow at its loss.
