Events and announcements
Bozeman writer sets Billings read Stanley Gordon West, a Bozeman author, will give a free public reading at 7 p.m. Friday in Billings.
Writer's Voice of the Billings Family YMCA is presenting his appearance at Barnes & Noble.
West's latest work, "Growing An Inch," is final book of a trilogy set in St. Paul/Minneapolis in 1949. Earlier installments were "Until They Bring the Streetcars Back" and "Finding Laura Buggs."
The books take place at the same time and share a setting and many characters, but are different tales told from different points of view.

Among his earlier novels are "Blind Your Ponies" and "Amos: To Ride a Dead Horse." "Amos" was made into an Emmy-nominated CBS "Movie of the Week" with Elizabeth Montgomery, Dorothy McGuire and Kirk Douglas.
