Thank you to our readers who make author events successful and fun by attending and supporting literary events in Central Oregon.
Craig Johnson returns!
Friday May 15th at 5:30 PM at the SHARC Craig Johnson will give a presentation on the latest in his New York Times Bestselling Walt Longmire series, Dry Bones. Craig Johnson’s books inspired the most highly rated drama series in A & E history, the Longmire series starring Robert Taylor, Lou Diamond Phillips, and Katee Sackoff. Longmire has moved to Netflix and is scheduled to debut a new season there this September. Craig will probably have more information for us at his event.
Dry Bones releases May 12th, we would be happy to pre-order books for you. We have copies signed by Craig Johnson of most of the Longmire series at Sunriver Books & Music.
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.
We are also grateful to be able to present this important author to the community at SHARC. The facility is spacious, comfortable, and welcoming. Chris Harrison, the Event Manager, goes out of his way to be helpful and cooperative. As you may know there have been some changes at SHARC. In future at our author events, SHARC will be providing a bar, so while the drinks will have a normal charge there will also be greater variety. I understand both red and white wine will be available, as will beer and soft drinks. Entrance to the event is still free and Sunriver Books & Music will still provide free treats and bottled water. We think this will enable the audience to have more and better choices while enjoying a great event.
Sign up early to attend this free event! Sign up by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 541-593-2525 or stopping by Sunriver Books & Music. Craig Johnson’s presentations are always popular, he is the star of our lineup. He puts on a great show and is the star of our lineup!
