A New Read At The Heritage Center
We’ll be beginning a tremendous new read this evening (Tuesday) up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. We have a few pages left to go in the Montana State Prison at Deer Lodge story (Dark Spaces: Montana’s Historic Penitentiary at Deer Lodge” by Ellen Baumler) & then it’s on to “Empty mansions; The Mysterious Life of Hugette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune”. From Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bill Dedmann & Hugette’s cousin, Paul Clark Newell, Jr., comes the definitive account of over-the-top wealth, modern day drama, & the rich history of one of America’s wealthiest families-& the haunting story of the surprisingly full life of reclusive American heiress Huguette Clark. More about the book next week & looking forward to MORE Montana History tonight at the Heritage Center.
