A Mysterious Life

I’ll be up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby tonight (Tuesday) to read/share MORE Montana History. Last week, we began reading “Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune.” Ballantine Books has published Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Bill Dedman & Paul Clark Newell, Jr.’s page turner & it looks like it’s going to be a good one! “Empty Mansions” explores the issues of Huguette’s competence & how she managed to sign 2 wills within 6 weeks. We’ll meet her extravagant father, her publicity-shy mother, her star-crossed sister, her French boyfriend, the immigrant nurse who received more than $30 million in gifts, the attorney & accountant who managed her money & fell under a district attorney’s investigation, & the relatives who went to court seeking to inherit it all. The Clark family story encompasses the entire span of American history in just 3 generations, from a log cabin in Pennsylvania to mining camps in the Montana gold rush, from cross-country travel in private railroad cars of the 19th century to a police investigation in one of the largest apartments on 5th Avenue in the 21st century. Check out this Ballantine Books Hardcover at: www.EmptyMansionsBook.com or: www.BallantineBooks.com. We’re only a few pages into the book, & already I have learned a valuable lesson: “Be nice to EVERYBODY…you never know when someone is going to kick the bucket & leave you 30 million in their will! I’m more than looking forward “Empty Mansions”, our next book during Montana History at the Heritage Center. See you tonight at the Heritage at 6 o’clock SHARP.
