Meet the Author: Craig Johnson

Thursday, September 14th
7:00 PM
Weymouth High School Auditorium
1 Wildcat Way, South Weymouth

Join us as we welcome award-winning author Craig Johnson with his new book The Western Star, the most recent in the Walt Longmire series, which serves as the inspiration for the long-running Longmire television series.

Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a celebratory beer after a weapons certification at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy when a younger sheriff confronts him with a photograph of twenty-five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It takes him back to when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Walt accompanied his mentor Lucian to the annual Wyoming Sheriff's Association junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star, which ran the length of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Evanston and back. Armed with his trusty Colt .45 and a paperback of Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, the young Walt was ill-prepared for the machinations of twenty-four veteran sheriffs, let alone the cavalcade of curious characters that accompanied them. 
 
The photograph—along with an upcoming parole hearing for one of the most dangerous men Walt has encountered in a lifetime of law enforcement—hurtles the sheriff into a head-on collision of past and present, placing him and everyone he cares about squarely on the tracks of runaway revenge.

Books will be available for sale and refreshments will be provided. There will also be a raffle for a full signed collection of the Walt Longmire book series.
