What to do in Bozeman, 8/20 - 8/26

Author Thomas McNamee presentation
Where:  Country Bookshelf
When:  WEDNESDAY (8/20) at 7 p.m.
Why: We're talking an A-list author here with publishing credits from some of the nation's best journals and newspapers, to go along with his Peabody and Emmy awards. His newest book, The Killing of Wolf Number Ten, is sure to be worthy of the hometown, Yellowstone-loving crowd.  (Still not sure if this free event doesn't deserve the "smartest" designation...)



FAMILY — MSU Catapalooza 2014
Where:  MSU's Malone Centennial Mall
When:  SATURDAY (8/21) and SUNDAY (8/22) from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. 
Why:  Open to the public, with lots of free food and soft drinks, raffles, and bags and bags of cheap, knick-knack giveaways. Savvy parents have been bringing the kiddos to these annual, kick-off-the-school-year events because... because, at the end of summer, what else ya gonna do with them?



Tour de Pour Slow Ride
Where: Starts at The Pour House in downtown Bozeman
When:  THURSDAY (8/21) at 6 p.m.
Why:  As the season of the overly maligned Music on Main series is now officially over (though the maligning continues), young locals may be seeking another downtown, before-sunset excuse to rinse away their sobreity. Plus bikes. Plus free BBQ at the destination, Spectators, near campus. 


Screen on the Green, presenting "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"
Where: Emerson Center lawn
When:  SATURDAY (8/23), 7 p.m.
Why:  No way you'll catch me there. My dirtbag older brothers forced me to watch this movie at much too young and impressionable an age. Burned enough of the gruesome (probably ridiculously so) scenes and images into my brain that I need never see it again. More likely that you'll find me on Sunday afternoon, watching Pinky and the Floyd play at the public library's coincidentally named "Day on the Green" event from 4 to 7 p.m.


And "the smartest thing you can do in Bozeman this week" is:  

MSU Freshmen Convocation with Shiza Shahid
Where:  Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, MSU
When: MONDAY (8/25) at 6:45 p.m.     
Why:  A matter of clarification, Shahid is the CEO and co-founder of the Malala Fund, but she is not Malala, the Pakistani girl who was shot in the face by members of the Taliban for seeking an education. Malala Yousafzai is the co-author of "I Am Malala," the Bozeman Public Library's selection for 'One Book, One Bozeman 2014.' Nonetheless, this presentation should be fascinating and particularly welcome here in Bozeman, the home of the Centrail Asia Institute.
