Live From Prairie Lights: Craig Johnson

Best-selling author Craig Johnson will read from his new book, The Highwayman: A Longmire Story. In 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...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 Craig Johnson is the author of eight previous novels in the Walt Longmire series, the basis for the hit drama Longmire, now on Netflix. He has a background in law enforcement and education. He lives in Ucross, Wyoming, population 25. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa–sponsored events.
