Craig Johnson, novelist and creator of A&E's "Longmire" is 2013 Distinguished Speaker

Johnson SMALLCraig Johnson, author of the Walt Longmire mysteries, is this year’s Geauga County Library Foundation Distinguished Speaker. A wine-and-cheese reception with the author begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Notre Dame Education Center (13000 Auburn Road / Munson) auditorium Sat., Nov. 16. Johnson’s presentation begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets to the reception and program cost $20. Tickets for the program only cost $5. Tickets for the event are available at all GCPL locations. *

Johnson’s Longmire mysteries are set in fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming, where aging Sheriff Walt Longmire’s unique blend of humor, empathy, and pathos drives his investigations as well as his interactions with his lifelong friend, Henry Standing Bear; his fiery deputy, Vic (Victoria) Moretti; his daughter, Cady (a Philadelphia attorney); and his dog, Dog. Readers have called his novels beautifully written and very accessible.

The Longmire mysteries in chronological order are: The Cold Dish, Death Without Company, Kindness Goes Unpunished, Another Man’s Moccasins, Dark Horse, Junkyard Dogs, Hell Is Empty, As the Crow Flies, and A Serpent’s Tooth. The novella Spirit of Steamboat will be released in October 2013. He has also published eBook stories for Kindle and Nook: “Christmas in Absaroka County,” “Divorce Horse,” and “Messenger.” Visit his website for more information.

Based on the Walt Longmire mysteries, the television series “Longmire” recently finished its second season on A&E and has been renewed for a third year. It airs Mondays at 10 p.m.

The Walt Longmire series is available at GCPL in print and audio formats. GCPL also has the complete first season of the television series Longmire on DVD. Check out copies today and prepare for what promises to be a highly entertaining evening.

Check our website or Facebook page for more information. The Distinguished Speaker Series is sponsored by The Geauga County Library Foundation and the combined Friends of the Libraries.

*Tickets to the wine-and-cheese reception ($20) must be purchased at a GCPL location by Monday, Nov. 11. Program tickets ($5) are available at all GCPL locations through Nov. 16 and will be on sale at the door as well.
