The Sheridan County Friends of the Library will be hosting their annual Spring Author's Reception this evening at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library.
Featured guest is James Grady, who wrote the best-selling suspense novel Six Days of the Condor. The book was later made into a hit movie starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway, only with the title changed to Three Days of the Condor.
So how did Grady, who makes his home on the east coast, connect with the Friends?
Actually Grady came by his attraction to Craig Johnson's Stetson cowboy hat naturally – he is in fact a Montana native, having grown up in Shelby, MT.
Grady graduated from the University of Montana in Missoula, and spent three months on an internship in Washington D.C. He explains how he wrote this landmark novel at the age of 23.
Among the many books Grady has written are Shadow of the Condor, Mad Dogs, River of Darkness, Steeltown and Hard Bargains.
The Friends of the Library Author's Reception for James Grady begins at 7:30 pm at the Fulmer Public Library in Sheridan. Tickets are $10 per person and available at Fulmer and at all the Sheridan County Branch libraries. Refreshments will also be served.
