That book was controversial because of how heavily Stegner relied on the diaries of Mary Hallock Foote in its creation.
Now, you have an opportunity to learn about the Footes, Stegner, and the controversy in a play written by Sands Hall.
A staged reading, directed by Sands Hall, will be performed Saturday, September 24 at 7 pm at the El Korah Shrine Auditorium, 1118 W Idaho in Boise. See the flyer below for additional details. For tickets, click here.
Proceeds will benefit the Foote Park Interpretive Center, which can be accessed by driving south across Lucky Peak Dam, then taking the first road to the right.
I’ve seen the play Fair Use. If you love Idaho history, you won’t want to miss this.
