An award-winning mystery writer, C.J. Box, is making a 6-city tour promoting his new novel. And one of those cities is Hamilton, Montana. And why not? "The Bitterroots" is Box's new book set in Western Montana. He's won awards for his Joe Pickett series, and is letting private investigator Cassie Dewell stand in the limelight in this new mystery.

The folks at Hamilton's Chapter One Book Store reserved the community room at Hamilton's City Hall for Box's appearance. The price of admission - you buy the book (and it will be autographed, too). The reading by the author will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, August 21. A few tickets are still available at Chapter One in Hamilton.
