Author Behind Netflix's 'Longmire', And One Couple's Collection Of All Things Kansas City

Sep 21, 2017

This is the final season for the popular Netflix series Longmire, but not for the books that inspired it. Today, their author, Craig Johnson, reveals the inspiration for his latest novel about the fictional sheriff of Wyoming's Absaroka County, and relates what it felt like when his character came to life on screen. Then, learn what a Prairie Village husband and wife team did when their passion for amassing memorabilia about Kansas City left them with a collection too big to fit under one roof.

Craig Johnson speaks at the Woodneath Library Center of the Mid-Continent Public Library at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 21. For more information, go to
