C.J. Box joins bookfest fiction panel

C.J. Box, author of the Joe Pickett mystery novels, will join the Equality State Book Festival’s panel of fiction writers Saturday, Sept. 20, at the Nicolaysen Art Museum in Casper. Box’s eighth book, Blood Trail, the latest in the travails of Wyoming Game and Fish Warden Joe Pickett, came out in May from Putnam to still more favorable reviews.

Don’t miss Box and novelists Tina Welling, (Crybaby Ranch), Bob Roripaugh (The Legend of Billy Jenks), and Laura Pritchett, (Sky Bridge), judge of this year’s Wyoming Arts Council fiction fellowships, speaking about their lives and craft on a panel called “Making Up Stories in the West”, starting at 2:45 p.m. Novelist and University of Wyoming fiction instructor Alyson Hagy (Snow, Ashes) will moderate.

Mark your calendar now! The festival runs three days at Casper College and various spots around town. Check www.equalitystatebookfest.com for all the details.

Registering for workshops, the banquet, and for exhibit tables at the day-long book fair is now even easier.

Or if you prefer, print out the form and send in a check. But sign up soon–workshop space and exhibit space are limited.

And if you are an author with at least one book in print and would like to reserve a 15 minute reading slot between 9 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, please contact Kathy Coe to set up a time. And tell your friends! People who sign up soon will have their names listed in our big festival program that goes out to 50,000 subscribers to the Casper Journal and the Casper Star-Tribune.
