Highlands Ranch: Jeff Guinn, the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Gunfight, will read from and sign his new novel Glorious ($26.95 Putnam), a sweeping novel of the Old West, weaving a compelling tale of life in the Arizona Territory in 1872. “A trip to Glorious, Arizona, in Jeff Guinn’s new western novel is like a cool draft beer after a long, hot day on a dusty trail. Glorious is old-fashioned in the very best way: It’s good-hearted, optimistic, compelling, comfortable, and extremely well-told. It’s wonderful when an author clearly has affection for his characters, and readers will feel the same way.” —C. J. Box Can’t make it to the signing?
