The author of the Longmire books, Craig Johnson, will be in Basin March 24 for a book discussion and lunch.
The event, which will be held at the Big Horn County Fairgrounds in Basin at 1 p.m., is a fundraiser for the Basin Area Chamber, American Legion Post 29, American Legion Auxiliary and Salvation Army/Basin Food Bank.
A lunch will be served featuring Stacey Lesher’s famous pulled pork sandwiches, chips, baked beans, cookies and Pepsi products.
Sky Aviation is a cosponsor and will be flying Johnson in for the event. Also contributing to the fundraiser is Tepps Ag (pork), Security State Bank (napkins), Auxiliary (cookies) and Pepsi/Admiral Beverage (drinks). The chamber is also seeking donations of barbecue sauce, paper plates, chips and plastic silverware.
There will also be a silent auction table to benefit Felines and Friends of Wyoming. Auction items include wine and two footballs autographed by Brett Keisel.
The tickets are $15 each and are available for purchase at the Greybull Standard and Basin Republican Rustler.
