9th annual Fall Lecture Series to start Sept. 18
The 9th annual Fall Lecture Series presented by The Historical Museum at St. Gertrude will get underway next Thursday, Sept. 18.
Sessions will be Thursdays from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Spirit Center at the Monastery of St. Gertrude, Cottonwood, ID.
Sessions planned this fall are:

Sept. 18    “C.E.S. Wood and the Nez Perce”

                   Laurence Cotton, co-producer of this new documentary film,     
                   will present the film and discuss the deep impact the Nez 
                   Perce War had on Wood’s life and his multi-faceted career, 
                   as well as on regional, national, and Nez Perce tribal history. 
                   The film details the friendship that developed between 
                   Wood and Chief Joseph.

Sept. 25     “All the News That’s Fit to Sing: Scandals, Politics, & 
                     Slander in Song”

                   Bill Rossiter performs “musical oral history”.  Few of the 
                   songs are polished, but many are hilarious, and they have 
                   guts and directness that make up for what they lack in 
                   finesse.  Courtesy of Idaho Humanities Council.               

Oct. 2         “Celebrating 100 Years ‘at Home’ in Idaho”

                   Sister Janet Bernard, OSB, tells the history in Idaho of the 
                   sisters of the Monastery of St. Gertrude. Rare historic 
                   photos from the Monastery’s archives enhance the lecture.

Oct. 9       “Steaming on the River”

                  Carole Simon-Smolinski will discuss the history of 
                  steamboats on the Snake and Clearwater Rivers. Historic 
                  period photographs will be included.
