Friends of Library Invite Author to Speak
At Annual Membership Meeting in April

Jim Butcher will be the guest speaker at the annual Friends of the Library Membership meeting on April 27 at 7 p.m. in the First Christian Church.  Butcher will be available to sign books following the meeting.

Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files, the Codex Alera, and a new steampunk series, the Cinder Spires. His resume includes a laundry list of skills which were useful a couple of centuries ago, and he plays guitar quite badly. An avid gamer, he plays tabletop games in varying systems, a variety of video games on PC and console, and LARPs whenever he can make time for it. 

Jim goes by the moniker Longshot in a number of online locales. He came by this name in the early 1990′s when he decided he would become a published author. Usually only 3 in 1000 who make such an attempt actually manage to become published; of those, only 1 in 10 make enough money to call it a living. The sale of a second series was the breakthrough that let him beat the long odds against attaining a career as a novelist.

 All the same, he refuses to change his nickname.
