Elk River Books ~Cherie Newman~ July 25 7pm

Bozeman-based public radio producer Chérie Newman visits Elk River Books to discuss her new memoir, Other People’s Pets: Critters, Careers, and Capitalism in Yellowstone Country, on Thursday, July 25.  “When most of her freelance income disappears during the recent world-wide shut down, Newman falls back on an old skill: pet sitting.

After a few crazy experiences, she begins to wonder if she should continue accepting critter sitter gigs. But then she has to face the hard truth: She needs the money.

Newman is a writer, musician, audio producer and editor. For 12 years she worked at Montana Public Radio, where she created hundreds of programs, news stories and podcasts. She has recorded interviews in studios located in Bozeman, Missoula, Spokane, Billings, Burbank and Los Angeles…
