The community is invited to attend a free presentation by Judy Woodruff from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Petro Theater on the campus of Montana State University Billings. Moderated by Yellowstone Public Radio personality Brian Kahn, Woodruff will answer questions from the audience, sharing her experiences and insights.

The mission of the Billings Public Library Foundation is to raise vital funds to provide a margin of excellence for the award-winning Billings Public Library. The Royal Johnson Forum was created to honor the founder of the Billings Public Library Foundation, Royal Johnson, who envisioned the Library as the center for not only traditional library services, but also for community gatherings, entertainment, and outreach.
