Missoula woman to sign magazines at Barnes & Noble
MISSOULA — Apostrophe, a Montana-based quarterly for, by and about people with developmental disabilities, will be on magazine racks at Barnes & Noble stores across the United States beginning Friday, Nov. 16.
In conjunction with the agreement to sell Apostrophe, the Missoula Barnes & Noble at 2640 N. Reserve St. will host a magazine “signing” from 1-3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 19, with Katie Rolf, who is the subject of a feature story in the Winter 2012/13 issue.
Well-known Missoula writer Ginny Merriam, author of the story, says 28-year-old Katie will “bowl you over with her enthusiasm for life.”
Katie, who is blind and has mild cerebral palsy, runs her own gourmet dog biscuit business in Missoula with help from her assistant, her grandmother. She competes in Special Olympics in bowling, equestrian events, basketball, snowshoeing and more. She sings in the VSA Montana choir and plays in the handbell choir at her church. She also plays piano.
“Part of the magic of Katie has been the inspiration she has been to people who know and love her,” Merriam writes.
You can read Katie’s story at apostrophemagazine.com.
