The Jesup Memorial Library welcomes international bestselling mystery writer C.J. Box this Saturday, Aug. 10 for a very special event that begins at 2 p.m.

The New York Journal of Books has called Mr. Box, who lives in Wyoming, “one of America’s best thriller writers.” He is the author of 17 novels including the Joe Pickett series featuring a Wyoming game warden; and four standalone novels including the just-published, “The Highway” which follows former police investigator Cody Hoyt as he tracks two girls gone missing on a lonely stretch of Montana highway, matching wits with a vicious serial killer to save the girls while struggling with his own demons.

Mr. Box has won the Edgar Allan Poe Award for Best Novel, the Anthony Award for literary crime fiction, the Prix Calibre 38, Macavity Award, and the Gumshoe Award.

His appearance at the Jesup is co-sponsored by Sherman’s Books, which will provide books for purchase that afternoon; part of the proceeds from all volumes sold at the library that day will be donated to the Jesup.
