What is the book?

Last Stand: Ted Turner’s Quest to Save a Troubled Planet written by Bozeman author and national journalist Todd Wilkinson, has been selected by the Bozeman Public Library Foundation as the official book for the 2013 One Book – One Bozeman. The book, published this spring by Lyons Press, features a foreword by Turner and offers an inside perspective of Turner’s evolution from global “media mogul” to Western “bison baron” and pathfinder as a 21st century “eco-capitalist-humanitarian.” Last Stand was selected as the recommended read for One Book – One Bozeman because it casts new light on Montana’s best-known international business icon and it takes readers on an adventure that begins in Bozeman and stretches literally around the world

What is One Book – One Bozeman?

One Book - One Bozeman is a community-wide read program to encourage engaged discussion and literacy through reading a common book. The Bozeman Public Library is partnering with Bozeman Schools and local businesses to bring a successful and comprehensive program to our town to promote community building and civic engagement.

Take time to read the book, and then in September take part in one or more of the series of activities throughout Bozeman to learn more about issues raised in the book and get to know your neighbors.

Where Can I Find the Book? 

The Bozeman Public Library has copies of each book in multiple formats and book club kits available for check-out. Also check local booksellers, the MSU Bookstore, and Renne Library.
