Write Where You Live with Kierstin Bridger

May 29, 9:00 am-12:00 pm at Montrose Field House

Write here, write now. Don’t you find the sunsets in Montrose extraordinary? There is big sky here. To the alert observer river walks are coursing with life, waiting for us to drink in metaphors and rich detail. The seams between the past and new development make for startling contrasts in this western hub.
