Novelist Reading at Elk River Books April 11 7pm

Award-winning Billings novelist CRAIG LANCASTER returns to Livingston’s Elk River Books to read from and discuss his new book, Northward Dreams, on Thursday, April 11.  This free event starts at 7pm and followed by book signing and reception.

Northward Dreams weaves together four timelines to depict the dreams and despair of several generations of a Western family, from the 1950s to the 2010s. According to the publisher, “In this novel, Lancaster, who has been hailed as ‘one of Montana’s most important writers,’ goes deep into how history shapes and confines us and how hope sometimes stubbornly abides.”

Lancaster is the author of ten novels and a collection of short stories, including two High Plains Book Award-winning titles: 600 Hours of Edward and And It Will Be a Beautiful Life. His work has been honored by the Montana Book Awards, the Utah Book Awards, the Independent Publisher Book Awards, the International Book Awards, the American Fiction Awards as well as many other citations. His first full-length play, Straight On To Stardust, made its world premiere in October 2023 in a production by Yellowstone Repertory Theatre.

Elk River Books is located at 122 S. 2nd St.  Call  (406) 333-2330.
