Wyoming book author C. M. Wendelboe will be at our library to talk about his books on February 7 at 2:00 p.m. His first two books, “Death Where the Bad Rocks Live” and “Death Along the Spirit Road” are part of a series set in Pine Ridge.

Wendelboe served in Vietnam and returned to a career in law enforcement. He served in many small towns around the Indian Reservations in South Dakota before moving to Gillette to find his niche as a sheriff’s deputy for 25 years.

Please set the time aside now to attend and hear the background. If there are any budding authors that attend, he will talk about writing also.
