Talk & book signing by Craig Johnson
Wednesday, October 9
Join New York Times bestselling author Craig Johnson for a talk featuring Land of Wolves, the fifteenth and latest novel in his acclaimed and award-winning Walt Longmire mystery series, chronicling the life and work of a small-town Wyoming sheriff. The talk is followed by a book signing; books will be available for purchase the Center Store beginning September 17.
With more than 3 million Walt Longmire books sold so far, Johnson is one of the most popular and prolific mystery writers writing today. Land of Wolves is his newest novel, published by Viking. As with the other books in the Longmire series, readers are once again drawn in to the rugged and colorful world of Wyoming’s glorious landscape. With legions of devoted readers, the series was also the inspiration for Longmire, the hit Netflix TV show—streaming all six seasons.
In Johnson’s previous book, Depth of Winter, Walt’s daughter Cady was kidnapped by his longtime nemesis, Tomás Bidarte, an international hit man and the head of one of the most vicious drug cartels in Mexico. In Land of Wolves, while attempting to recover from his harrowing experiences in Mexico, Walt is neck deep in the investigation of what could or could not be the suicidal hanging of a shepherd. With unsettling connections to a Basque family with a reputation for removing the legs of Absaroka County sheriffs, matters become even more complicated with the appearance of an oversize wolf in the Bighorn Mountains to whom Walt finds himself feeling more and more empathetic.
