FMCA “Supersized” Book Club


Looking for a book to read this summer? Join the FMCA Supersized Book Club in Gillette! In the spirit of RVing along the open road and to celebrate the convention’s Western theme, FMCA is encouraging attendees to read The Highwayman by Craig Johnson.

Johnson is a New York Times best-selling author of more than a dozen novels in the Walt Longmire mystery series — whose character is also the inspiration for the popular “Longmire” crime drama on Netflix.

Join the first FMCA Supersized Book Club on Saturday, July 21. Johnson will be on-site to lead a discussion about The Highwayman. He’ll also answer audience questions and sign copies of his books . . . perhaps along with the airing of a “Longmire” episode.

If you’d like to join in,

  1. Pick up a copy of The Highwayman to bring with you.
