AUTHOR, CREATOR OF ‘LONGMIRE’ VISITS OKLAHOMA CITY

Successful author and creator of the Longmire novels, now the basis for an acclaimed A&E drama of the same name, visited Oklahoma City last month to sign copies of his new novel.

Craig Johnson read and signed copies of his new novel, “Any Other Name” May 19 at Full Circle Books at 50 Penn Place. The new novel is perfectly timed with the introduction of season three of “Longmire,” the A&E television show. The previous two seasons met with critical and ratings success.

“Longmire” follows the western character Sheriff Walt Longmire through his trials, tribulations and mysteries during the Old West. The tenth novel in the series, “Any Other Name” continues Johnson’s literary stories about the hero.

Johnson is the recipient of the Wyoming Historical Award for fiction, the Western Writers of America Spur Award for fiction, the Mountains and Plains Booksellers Award for fiction, the Rocky Award from Left Coast Crime, the Nouvel Observateur Prix du Roman Noir, and the Prix 813. Spirit of Steamboat was selected by the Wyoming Library Association as the “One Book Wyoming” for fall 2013. He lives in Ucross, Wyoming
