Need Something To Do Tuesday?

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2013 at 4:00 AM


It might seem obvious that people from Idaho have different mannerisms, habits and preferences than people in New York, Beijing and Kuala Lampur. But today at 3 p.m., as part of Heatherwood Retirement Community's Lifelong Learning Lecture Series, Dr. John Bieter of Boise State University will give American Western identity the thorough consideration it deserves.

Using Claude Dallas, the Taylor Creek bombing and ongoing public discussion of the fate of the Owyhee Canyonlands as lenses, Bieter will examine how regional identity has shaped Idaho's history and continues to shape Idahoans' lives.

Though the lecture will be held at Heatherwood—5277 Kootenai St., Boise—as with all of Heatherwood's Lifelong Learning lectures, this event is free and the public is encouraged to attend. For more info or to RSVP, call 208-345-2150.
