Wyoming Author Craig Johnson Speaking at CCPL

Tuesday, December 12, 2017

Craig Johnson, New York Times best selling author, is coming to Campbell County Public Library to share his annual Christmas story!

Craig Johnson Returns to CCPL

Campbell County Library is pleased to once again welcome New York Times best selling Wyoming author Craig Johnson to speak at CCPL on Tuesday, December 12 at 6pm.

Johnson has a lot of “firsts” at CCPL! He first visited Campbell County Libraries in 2007 when his first Longmire story, The Cold Dish, was featured as the county’s first One Book, One Community book. Since then the author has become one of Campbell County’s favorite authors! This visit will feature Craig talking about his newest book The Western Star as well as his annual Christmas story.

Johnson is the author of 16 novels in the Walt Longmire mystery series, which has garnered popular and critical acclaim. His first book, The Cold Dish, was a Dilys Award finalist and the French edition won Le Prix du Polar Nouvel Observateur/BibliObs. Death Without Company, the Wyoming State Historical Association’s Book of the Year, won France’s Le Prix 813. Another Man’s Moccasins was the Western Writers of America’s Spur Award winner and the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers’ Book of the Year, and The Dark Horse, the fifth in the series, was a Publishers Weekly Best Book of the Year. Junkyard Dogs won the Watson Award for a mystery novel with the best sidekick, and Hell Is Empty, selected by Library Journal as the Best Mystery of the Year, was a New York Times best seller, as was As the Crow Flies. The Walt Longmire series is the basis for the hit Netflix drama, Longmire, starring Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Katee Sackoff. Johnson lives in Ucross, Wyoming, population twenty-five.

Don’t miss your opportunity to get in to the Christmas spirit...Longmire style!
