The death of the Western Genre has been predicted often, but Western fiction hangs on. Join us for a discussion with author Kevin Wolf, covering the history of the genre, how it is changed and why today’s authors, such as Box, Johnson and Hillerman, still find intrigued readers.
Kevin Wolf’s novel, 'The Homeplace' is the winner of the 2015 Tony Hillerman Award. The novel was a finalist for the 2016 Strand Critics Award for Debut Mystery. His short story, 'Belthanger,'was selected by Western Writers of America as the 2021 Spur Award Winner for Best Short fiction. The great-grandson of Colorado homesteaders, he enjoys fly fishing, old Winchesters, and 1950's Western movies. He and his wife live in Estes Park.
After the program, Kevin Wolf will sign copies of his books, available for purchase that evening, thanks to our partners at Macdonald Book Shop.
