Press release

Ian Marquand is coming to the Havre-Hill County Library Tuesday, March 26, at 7 p.m. to present “Kumamoto: Your Sister State”: An evening with Ian Marquand.

For 25 years, Marquand, a former television journalist, has been the president of the Japan Friendship Club of Montana. He’s been a leading promoter of Montana’s sister state relationship with Kumamoto, Japan, and is now honorary consul of Japan for Montana.

Tuesday, March 26, Marquand will share images and stories of the Montana-Kumamoto relationship at the library. He will tell about the origins of the relationship — including the role of former U.S. Sen. and U.S. Ambassador to Japan Mike Mansfield — and take the audience on a tour of this fascinating part of Japan where Montanans are especially welcome.

From historic Kumamoto castle to an active volcano to dinosaurs to Japanese culture, Marquand will share the best of Montana’s sister state.

The event is free and open to the public.
