The Friends of the Yellowstone Gateway Museum is sponsoring a program by entrepreneur Katie Clemons entitled “Story Matters: How to Catch and Celebrate Life’s Moments,” on Wednesday, April 2, 6:30 PM, at the Livingston-Park County Public Library, 228 W. Calendar. This program is free and open to the public.
As a fifth generation Montanan, Clemons lives with her German husband and their son in a vintage airplane hangar near Livingston. She is an entrepreneur, story catcher and journal crafter seeking to revitalize the personal writing and storytelling movement. Clemons helps people around the world celebrate their stories through Gadanke.com, her company of award-winning, eco-savvy writing prompt journals. She blogs about journaling and intentional living at MakingThisHome.com.
Museum staff first heard about Clemons and her passionate approach of helping people record their stories from one of the museum’s oral history team members, Camden Easterling. Clemons’ website, Gadanke.com, not only includes information about her journals but readers can also listen to a TedX Talk that Clemons delivered in Minot, North Dakota, where she shared her passion and philosophy of catching stories. Attending this program will give you the tools (and contagious enthusiasm) that you need to capture your family’s stories.
Everyone is invited to attend the free program. Refreshments are provided.
