Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A Corner of Space and Time: Lee Nye’s Eddies Club Portrait is Lee's collection of 125 8x10 black and white portraits of the patrons who inhabited Eddie's Club (now Charlie B's) from 1965 to 1973. It includes the biographies of each of the portraits. The introduction is in Lee's own words on the "how" and "why" the portraits were taken. The patrons were retirees, railroaders, mill workers, and construction workers. Lee referred to them as "The people who built Missoula and Montana." Also included are the writers Jim Crumley, Richard Hugo, and Anthony "Tony" Cronin. The collection still hangs at Charlie B's.

This presentation is an overview of collaboration of how to write a book that requires multiple areas expertise and how to develop a Kickstarter program to raise the funding for publication of said book.

The focus will be divided into two sections: the first will be the Kickstarter program; the second will be the collaborative process that Ben and Jean utilized when working with multiple entities to bring A Corner of Space and Time: Lee Nye’s Eddies Club Portraits to publication. It will end with the opening of the Kickstarter Program.
