Melissa Kwasny Reading
04/14/2019 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Melissa Kwasny will be holding a celebration for her new book Putting on the Dog: The Animal Origins of What We Wear on Sunday, April 14, 2 p.m. at the Montana Book Company. This will be a time where she does a little reading from her new piece and speak about the book. All are welcome!
In Putting on the Dog, local author and part-time professor Melissa Kwasny explores the age-old relationship between humans and the animals that have provided us with our clothing: leather, wool, silk, feathers, pearls, and fur. From silkworms grown on plantations in Japan and mink farms off Denmark’s western coast to pearl beds in the Sea of Cortés, Kwasny offers firsthand accounts of traditions and manufacturing methods―aboriginal to modern―and descriptions of the marvel and miracle of the clothing itself. What emerges is a fresh look at the cultural history of fashion.
Kwasny travels the globe to visit both large-scale industrial manufacturers and community-based, often subsistence production by people who have spent their lives working with animals―farmers, ranchers, tanners, weavers, shepherds, and artisans. She examines historical rates of consumption and efforts to move toward sustainability, all while considering animal welfare, worker safety, environmental health, product accountability, and respect for indigenous knowledge and practice.
At its heart, Putting on the Dog demonstrates how what we choose to wear represents one of our most profound engagements with the natural world.
Join us for a reading and presentation at the bookstore on a lazy and lovely Sunday afternoon.

Coffee History Dinner with Dr. Fregulia
04/17/2019 - 5:30pm to 8:00pm
The history of coffee is much more than the tale of one luxury good—it is a lens through which to consider various strands of world history, from food and foodways to religion, culture, economics and socio-cultural dynamics. Dr. Fregulia's first book, A Rich and Tantalizing Brew, traces the history of coffee and the coffeehouse as they gathered both aficionados and critics while reshaping patterns of socialization. During this talk, Dr. Fregulia will share a bit about the history of coffee and the coffeehouse, her research journeys and, as is true of her classes at Carroll, there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion!
The menu includes apple-pear walnut cups with bacon, Wagyu-coffee rubbed slider, triple cream Brie, and tiramisu. Executive Chef Mike McWilliams will pair our menu with coffee inspired beverages including Moon Bean coffee, Guinness, espresso martini, and Irish coffee. The cost with paired beverages is $40 per person or $25 per person without drink pairings.
