Livingston author Pat Miller will sign copies of her new book, Tales of the Sandarosa Motor Inn: 1974 – 2002, at Elk River Books during the Livingston Art Walk on Friday, July 23 from 5:30 to 8 p.m.
Miller’s spiral-bound volume has the feel of a personal scrapbook, revealing pieces of Livingston’s history through her eyes as director of the Chamber of Commerce and via her involvement with the Sandarosa (now the Best Western), at a time when the town’s tourist industry began to hit its stride.
In the introduction, Miller says she bases her humorous and colorful account on her diaries and files from those decades. “I endured the trials and tribulations of chefs, cooks, their assistants, chief bottle washers, pantry girls, salad girls, maids, bus boys, hostesses, maintenance people, security people, life guards, plumbers, electricians, furnace and air conditioning experts, waitresses, doormen, front desk clerks, NCA experts, laundry workers, bartenders, cocktail waitresses, snow shoverles, rock bands, western bands, undecided bands, thieves and bad check artists. Don’t for get the Union.”
The signing will take place at Elk River Books, 120 N. Main St. For more information, call 333-2330.
