May 22, 2019, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM @ Archives Building
The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, May 22, with a presentation by Madelynn Nelson and Melissa Englund from the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) about building community resilience and sustainability. A resilient Butte can adapt to changes without losing the essential qualities that define what Butte is and what it does. The presenters will focus on resilience being more than just hazard preparedness, and more of resilience as an uplifting and celebration of a community and its culture.
At the end of the presentation Nelson and Englund will talk about NCAT's upcoming Sosten Fest, and how it will aim to build resilience and sustainability in Butte through bringing the community together and starting important conversations. “Sosten” is a Cornish word meaning “sustenance” or “food.” This festival will focus on local food with the Great Pasty Throwdown competition as the highlight of the day.
May 24, 2019, 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM @ Historic Clark Chateau
Join us on Friday, May 24, at the Historic Clark Chateau as we invite Janelle Olberding to read her new book, Butte and the 1918 Influenza Pandemic. Doors open at 6:30pm, reading begins at 7pm. Light refreshments will be provided, suggested $5 donation.
In the last months of 1918, influenza killed approximately two percent of Butte's residents. The influenza pandemic of 1918 also had lasting effects on public health and healthcare systems in Montana and beyond. This book explores why and will illustrate how the pandemic is not just a part of history, but of Butte’s legacy.
Janelle M. Olberding is an independent historian, writer, avid reader, part-time educator, and lifelong learner.
The Historic Clark Chateau is located at 321 W. Broadway. Please call 565-5600 for more information.
