Author Talk with Mike Dennison

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 6:00pm

Welcome local author, and journalist, Mike Dennison as he shares his new book Inside Montana's Politics: A Reporters View From the Trenches. For three decades, Mike Dennison has reported on campaigns, crime and community. He has covered razor-thin victories by Senator Jon Tester. He has helped cover the downfall of Senator Conrad Burns, as well as the conservative senator's improbable compassion for a liberal friend charged with marijuana possession. Dennison has tracked down stories beyond the Capitol, from the devastating fall of the Montana Power Company, to a teenager falsely accused of rape who waited sixteen years to be fully exonerated. Dennison treats readers to the rare insights and highlights of a storied career in journalism, along with revelations that have never been exposed--until now.
