Heart Throb 5K

Do you love your heart and love your sweetie? Do you love to run in red outfits? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these, then you need to be at the Heart Throb 5K. Beat the winter doldrums and get your heart beating with a fun, mid-winter 5K for American Heart Month. Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States? In fact, one in every four deaths is the result of heart disease. Regular exercise is a great way to develop a healthy heart. Wear anything red and you’ll be eligible for a prize. This event takes place on Saturday, February 9 at 10 a.m.

Mary Houlihan: Me & Jack

From New York City, Mary joins the Missoula community on Saturday, February 9 at 7 p.m. and again at 9 pm. to give us some comic relief from the winter blues! The show will be about her rise from street-tough to America’s sweetheart, and of course, how it almost all came undone by her tumultuous years-long relationship with Jack Nicholson. Tickets are available through The Roxy’s website or in person at the ticket window. If you aren’t familiar with her work, Mary Houlihan has created and/or appeared in comedy videos for many outlets including TruTV, IFC, Above Average, Funny Or Die, and SeriouslyTV. She’s also appeared on Difficult People, The Chris Gethard Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Billy On The Street, and The Best Show with Tom Scharpling. She’s also notably written for The New Yorker and Reductress. We’ll see you there!

The Dawn Wall Movie Showing

The University Center Theater is hosting a free moving showing of The Dawn Wall on Thursday, February 28 at 7 p.m. at the University Center Theater. Co-sponsored by the University of Montana Outdoor Program and the Western Montana Climbers Coalition, there is a recommended donation of $10 per person to benefit WMTCC, or better yet, join the WMTCC for $10! The movie follows American rock climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson and how they captivated the world with their effort to climb The Dawn Wall, a seemingly impossible 3,000-foot rock face in Yosemite National Park, California. The pair lived on the sheer vertical cliff for weeks, igniting a frenzy of global media attention.

Book Reading & Signing with Stephanie Land

Tuesday, February 5, Missoula’s own Stephanie Land joins Shakespeare & Co. for a reading from her new memoir, MAID: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive at 7 p.m. In 2015, Stephanie wrote an impassioned viral essay in Vox, which detailed her life as a domestic worker, a field largely dominated by women working as house cleaners, nannies, and in elder care — jobs that often deny basic labor rights like minimum wage, overtime, sick and vacation pay. Emotionally raw yet heartwarming, MAID gives voice to the working poor, and is fueled by Stephanie’s courage to expose the reality of pursuing the American dream from below the poverty line. Stephanie Land’s work has been featured in The New York Times, The New York Review of Books, The Washington Post, The Guardian, Vox, Salon, and many other outlets.
