Join us Saturday, November 4th at 4 pm for a group reading, signing and reception with Jennifer Bisbing, Meradeth Houston, and Clare Tallier, authors of In Glacier’s Grip: A National Parks Anthology.
Embark on an adventure with the newest collection of short stories from the Missoula Writing Society. Meet three characters fumbling through life and the precarious mountain terrain of Glacier National Park. One is on the run. Another is grappling with failure. One is searching for acceptance. But, all are in Glacier’s Grip.
Jennifer Bisbing is an award-winning book editor and photographer originally from the Midwest, and she now resides in Livington. Raised by a renowned forensic scientist, Bisbing’s murder mystery Under the Pines reveals childhood memories of trips to the crime lab. With family dinner conversations notoriously leading to murder cases, it’s no surprise her forthcoming poetry chapbook (Finishing Line Press) has a few lingering villains. She currently writes for Montana Quarterly, edits for several national and international publishers, and can be found online at jenniferbisbing.com.
Clare Tallier is an award-winning ex-journalist who was part of exceptional newsrooms where she helped produce great writing; now, as editorial director of Self-Publishing Services, she helps writers of all kinds do the same. In Glacier’s Grip is her third anthology. She is on the last leg of the first novel in her Once Upon a Fairy Tale series of mysteries set in 1880s London.
Meradeth Houston has been writing since she realized the sequel to a book she loved as a kid didn’t exist…and she could make up the story herself. An anthropology professor by day, Meradeth makes her home in Montana, where she’s also a scientist specializing in forensic degraded DNA (translation: really old DNA that’s decayed). Her recent works, The Coincidence Makers and In Defiance of Fate showcase her gift for weaving modern tales that artfully blend real-world science and magic.
