As part of the Roundup, a deluxe basket of signed books and gifts, will be raffled off. Tickets for the raffle, available at the event, cost only $1 each or six for $5; the drawing will be held around 4 p.m. on Saturday, and you need not be present to win.


The Montana Writers Roundup is organized annually by Sigma Tau Delta, the MSU Billings branch of the international English honor society, a nonprofit academic organization. Sigma Tau Delta uses its share of the proceeds to support scholarships for English majors.


Autographed books make wonderful holiday presents, and the gift-wrapping is free, so come and see what our local and regional authors have to offer.
