At the Teton County Public Library, Ordway Auditorium, Jackson, Wednesday, Dec. 2, 6 p.m.
Teton County Library’s Teton Writers series presents Jackson author, Greg Zeigler, who will read select passages from his new novel, “Some Say Fire,” the sequel to his eco-thriller, “A Straw that Broke.” The reading will be followed by a Q&A with Zeigler on topics ranging from the writing process to the environmental and social issues surrounding drought in the American West. Refreshments will be served, and a book signing will follow with books available for purchase.
“Some Say Fire” pits former police officer Susan Brand and private investigator Jake Goddard against nefarious arsonists setting forest fires in the drought-stricken Southwest. Bodies are found in the fires, each with an arrow through the chest. Who are the murderers taking advantage of climate change to spread terror and cause widespread destruction? Goddard and Brand rush to discover the truth before more innocent people die and a conflagration devours the Southwest.
“Greg Zeigler is a rising star in penning modern environmental thrillers. Strap yourself in as he takes us on another green thrill ride,” writes Todd Wilkinson, journalist, environmentalist, and author of “Grizzlies of Pilgrim Creek.”
