Best-selling author Craig Johnson will read from his new book, The Highwayman: A Longmire Story.  In The Highwayman, Wyoming Highway Patrolman Rosey Wayman is transferred to the beautiful and imposing landscape of the Wind River Canyon—an area the troopers refer to as no-man's-land because of the lack of radio communication— where she starts receiving officer needs assistance calls. The problem? They're coming from Bobby Womack, a legendary Arapaho patrolman who met a fiery death in the canyon almost a half-century ago.

“The [Longmire] series continues to be fresh and innovative . . . Devoted series fans won’t feel a sense of déjà vu in Dry Bones, but they will easily identify Johnson’s tendency toward innovative imagery . . . crack dialogue, humor and a strong sense of place. Absaroka’s maker brings dem bones to life, and readers are sure to rejoice.” —Shelf Awareness
