Book Notes: ‘Longmire’ creator will read at Auntie’s in July

Author Craig Johnson’s latest book, “A Serpent’s Tooth,” is his ninth mystery.
Author Craig Johnson’s latest book, “A Serpent’s Tooth,” is his ninth mystery.

If you’ve been watching “Longmire” on A&E, you’re already familiar with the Wyoming sheriff created by Craig Johnson.

If you’re not watching, you have a chance to hear about Walt Longmire from Johnson himself, who is coming to Auntie’s Bookstore for a reading at 7 p.m. July 11.

Johnson, who lives in Ucross, Wyo., population 25, will read from “A Serpent’s Tooth,” the ninth Longmire mystery, which was released on June 4. The story involves a Mormon “lost boy” who wanders into town, looking for mother. But for Absaroka County’s sheriff, his deputy Victoria “Vic” Moretti, and his friend Henry Standing Bear, nothing is ever easy.


Auntie’s is located at 402 W. Main Ave. Call (509) 838-0206.

(Oh, and think about catching “Longmire” on A&E. New episodes from season 2 are airing at 10 p.m. Monday nights. As Nancy DeWolf Smith wrote the Wall Street Journal in May, “As always, figuring out what makes the sheriff tick is the best puzzle of all.”)

Calling all artists

Auntie’s is hosting a writing workshop for visual artists Thursday.

The workshop will be lead by Vicki Krohn Amorose, author of “Art-Write: The Writing Guide for Visual Artists.” The class offers exercises to help artists write about their work for shows, proposals and websites.

The class is from 6 to 8 p.m. It costs $20 and includes a copy of “Art-Write.”

Call Janelle at Auntie’s or email janelle@ for details or to register.

Slam fundraiser

Also on deck at Auntie’s: A fundraiser to help send Spokane’s slam poets to the national competition in Boston this August.

The five local finalists will give a sneak peek at what they’re prepping for nationals at 7 p.m. July 12. Auntie’s in turn will donate 10 percent of all sales that evening to the Spokane Poetry Slam Team.

For information, call Auntie’s.
