Award-winning novelist and New York Times best-selling author Craig Johnson will visit Colorado State University’s Bookstore at noon Tuesday, Dec. 4 to discuss his newest Longmire book, “As the Crow Flies.”

“Mr. Johnson is a great storyteller and brings our part of the country, the West, Wyoming and Colorado, to life in a way that Fort Collins can really appreciate,” said John Parry, director of the CSU Bookstore.

The Longmire novels, comprised of eight books, are the inspiration for A&E’s series, “Longmire,” a crime thriller set in Big Sky country. A book signing will follow the event, which is free and open to the public.

“Walt Longmire fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to meet Mr. Johnson, and those who are not familiar with Sherriff Longmire may just find that this is the exactly what they have been waiting for,” Parry said.

Johnson’s books are available on sale at the CSU Bookstore. For more information about his books, visit
