Best selling author of Longmire series coming to Sturgis


News Staff - October 17, 2018

STURGIS, SD – Wyoming rancher and best-selling author Craig Johnson will be in Sturgis, SD this week.  The Sturgis Area Arts Council said the award-winning author of the Longmire series on Netflix  will present a program in the Sturgis Community Center Theater on Friday, October 19th, at 6:00pm.

There will be a reception in the theater lobby following his remarks to give attendees the opportunity to meet and visit with Johnson, buy books, and have the author sign them.  Longmire merchandise will also be available for purchase.  

Johnson lives and ranches in Ucross, Wyoming-”population twenty-five,” with his wife, Judy. He started writing the series in 2005 with the publishing of “Cold Dish” and hasn’t shown any sign of stopping soon.

 “An Obvious Fact” is the twelfth novel in the series along with two novellas and a collection of short stories. The novel, “An Obvious Fact,”  uses the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally as a backdrop.

In the online publication, “Ride-CT” Johnson talks about his work and the story line behind the 'Obvious Fact' book.
“My stories  are set in the contemporary West and in my part of the west, Sturgis is a big deal. I like having Walt dealing with the things that actual western sheriffs deal with and not chasing Al-Qaida in Crook County or on a cruise ship. I’ve always had motorcycles and really like them, whereas Walt doesn’t. I’ve done Sturgis and it’s quite the experience.”

The program is co-sponsored by the Sturgis Public Library and is  free to the public
