Flathead Writers Chapter of The Wordsmith Collective is thrilled that our premier Meet the Author Series event will feature Billings author Russell Rowland. This is an online-only event. An RSVP is greatly appreciated.
Russell Rowland has published seven books, including five novels, two of which were finalists for the High Plains Book Award. His first novel, In Open Spaces, earned a starred review from Publisher’s Weekly and was called ‘a novel of muted elegance’ by the New York Times. He teaches online workshops and does one-on-one consulting with other writers, and he also hosts an NPR radio program based on his book, Fifty-Six Counties: A Montana Journey. He and fellow writer Aaron Parrett also host a podcast about Montana books called Breakfast in Montana, which can be found at breakfastinmontana.com. Finally, Russell recently launched a special blend of coffee called 56 Counties, working with a world renowned coffee roaster who is actually located right in Billings.
