Welcome to Elk River Arts & Lectures

Posted on

Welcome! Thanks for visiting Elk River Arts & Lectures. Our goal is to provide our community with high-caliber literary events and enrich the lives of local students.

Our mission is to bring great authors to Livingston, set up classroom visits at Park County’s public schools, and host free public lectures. Past seasons have included events with novelists Pam Houston, Kim Zupan and Pete Fromm, memoirists Mary Clearman Blew and Gary Ferguson, poets Henry Real Bird, Pamela Uschuk, William Pitt Root and M.L. Smoker, journalists Joshua Phillips and Deanne Stillman, and radio producers/hosts Scott Carrier and David Barsamian.

We’ve also hosted special events including a reading with Brooke and Terry Tempest Williams, a concert with Jessie Bridges and Calista, and a screening of the film “Wrenched” which explores the environmental activism legacy of Edward Abbey.

Take a look at our website, and take advantage of our programs: we’re thrilled to share our passion for literature with you, and deeply appreciate whatever support you can afford. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, thus your donations are fully tax-deductible.

Livingston is a unique literary gem, with an amazing artistic legacy. It is our hope that, as a community, we can come together to ensure a vibrant future as well.

    • Hey Buff- We make arrangements for each lecturer to spend time with a class of Park High students. Kelly Dick is on our board, and our liaison with the school, so he matches the writers with the students. If you want to know more, drop by and either of us can tell you about it.
      Thanks!
      Andrea
