Thank you to our readers who make author events successful and fun by attending and supporting literary events in Central Oregon.
Craig Johnson gave a great presentation May 15th at SHARC on Dry Bones the latest in his New York Times Bestselling Walt Longmire series.
We thought you might enjoy a few photographs of the event. Dr. Sue Dougherty is the event photographer. Dr. Dougherty is a very talented board certified internist at Bend Veterinary Specialists 541-312-2114.
The SHARC is a great venue. Chris Harrison, SHARC’s Event Manager, tries to make sure everyone is comfortable.
Craig and Judy Johnson
The Walt Longmire series have been Indie Next List picks many times, New York Times Best Sellers, and multiple award winners. They are popular in Europe as well as the USA. Craig Johnson’s novels are literary as well as entertaining. If you have been watching the TV series, read the books and learn more about the characters.
Craig Johnson’s loyalty in returning to Sunriver Books & Music is hugely appreciated. He is a good friend and strong supporter of Independent Bookstores. We are grateful and honored that he continues to visit us and give great presentations.
In June we are featuring A Month of Montana. Every year we focus for the month of June on a regions, state, or city of the USA. It is good preparation for celebrating the 4th of July. As we read books set in parts of the USA it is apparent the diversity of our people, the grandeur and vastness of our landscape, and the rich cultural heritage of various regions are what makes our country special. Join us by reading books set in Montana, several are suggested in June’s newsletter. Here is a link: http://www.sunriverbooks.com/sites/sunriverbooks.com/files/SR%20Books%20June%202015.pdf
Our key speaker for the Month of Montana is Carrie La Seur on June 6th at 5:00 PM. Her debut novel, The Home Place, is brilliantly evocative of its Montana setting. Here is a link to her event page: http://www.sunriverbooks.com/event/carrie-la-seur-home-place-0
