McManus will speak at EWU

His books may be recognized nationwide, but he’s still a Northwest local. Outdoor writer, humorist and longtime Spokane resident Patrick McManus will speak Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in the JFK Library lobby on the Eastern Washington University campus.

The event, sponsored by EWU Friends of the Library, will offer a chance for area residents to meet the author of New York Times best-sellers like “Real Ponies Don’t Go Oink!” and “The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw.”

“A Conversation with Pat McManus” is free and open to the public. The event will conclude with a question-and-answer session and a book signing. Members of the public are invited to bring their favorite McManus book or purchase a copy at the event. Books will be given away as prizes and refreshments will be provided.

The author has written 19 books, recently swapping his signature outdoor humor to mystery novels, with the Sheriff Bo Tully series. His most recent book is “The Double-Jack Murders,” third in the series, which will be published by Simon & Schuster in September.
