Live From Prairie Lights: Craig Johnson

Longmire author Craig Johnson will talk about his work and sign books at Prairie Lights to promote the hardcover release of his new book The Western Star, and the paperback edition of An Obvious Fact.

 "A Walt Longmire novel is like going on a ride-along with an old friend, watching him ferret out the bad guys with wit and humanity (and more than a few bullets), while we swap stories and catch up on old's An Obvious Fact—it's good to have Walt back on the scene." —Mystery Scene

Craig Johnson is the New York Times bestselling author of the Longmire mysteries, the basis for the hit Netflix original series Longmire. He is the recipient of the Western Writers of America Spur Award for fiction, and his novella Spirit of Steamboat was the first One Book Wyoming selection. He lives in Ucross, Wyoming, population twenty-five.
