February 4th
12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Join us at the Senior Center (1831 E. 4th St.) for a book signing and talk with Audrey Cotherman, author of A Pinch of Salt.

"A Pinch of Salt" addresses the human condition -- our foibles and our triumphs, personally and as members of a community. Sometimes humorous, always serious, readers may recognize their own lives and their own truths.

February 21st
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Jasper Fforde will be in Casper all the way from the UK doing a book signing at Natrona County Public Library.

Call or come in to Wind City Books to pick up a copy his books and join in on our book club where we are reading The Eyre Affair for February. Join in on our book club here.

Great Britain circa 1985: time travel is routine, cloning is a reality (dodos are the resurrected pet of choice), and literature is taken very, very seriously. Baconians are trying to convince the world that Francis Bacon really wrote Shakespeare, there are riots between the Surrealists and Impressionists, and thousands of men are named John Milton, an homage to the real Milton and a very confusing situation for the police. Amidst all this, Acheron Hades, Third Most Wanted Man In the World, steals the original manuscript of Martin Chuzzlewit and kills a minor character, who then disappears from every volume of the novel ever printed! But that's just a prelude . . .

March 3rd
11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Join us at Wind City Books for Kiersi Burkhart's Honor Code book launch.

Sam knows how lucky she is to be part of the elite Edwards Academy. As she dreams of getting into Harvard one day, she's willing to do anything to fit in and excel at the private high school. Even if that means enduring hazing, signing up for a sport she hates, and attending the school dance with an upperclassman she barely knows.

But when she learns the high cost of entry, will Sam be willing to bury the worst night of her life in order to "keep the community sacred"? As the line between truth and justice blurs, Sam must find out for herself what honor really means.

March 29th
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Vicki's Corner


The Which Way Tree
Crook recounts the trials of Benjamin and Samantha "Sam" Shreve told via the letters and testament of Benjamin. Through his voice the reader is carried off on a fearsome adventure involving 14 yr old Benjamin, 12 yr old Sam, an aging Mexican who might or might not be a horse thief, an elderly preacher and his equally elderly dog, a murdering secessionist, and an invincible panther. Crook has created engaging characters the will remain in the reader's mind long after. Fabulous!

Wind City Book Club!

Starting this year, Wind City Books will do a monthly book club. Every month we will pick out a book and look forward to the community joining in to discuss it with staff on our Wind City Book Club Facebook group.

This month's book is The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde, who will be joining us from all the way in the UK for a book signing this month at the Natrona Public Library.


Other Readings


Tom Miller's novel, The Philosopher's Flight, flings us into an American history altered by the special abilities of women.
America is fighting World War I with male soldiers on the front lines and female philosophers flying in for Rescue and Evacuation. Philosophers walk a fine line this world has between magic and science, allowing them to transform chemicals to their will or defy gravity and fly. Robert Weekes wants to walk that line, not march in ranks with a gun. 
Robert will have to prove himself in the art of flying and work harder still from there to convince the women at Radcliffe college that he is ready for Rescue and Evac. Robert and many of the women around him are also thrust into political and social challenges that leaves them all questioning what they are willing to do with the power given to them.
Robert is not naturally talented and his struggle is well documented to the point that as a reader you learn to understand the technical parts of philosophy. What you read is what you get and more often than not, the first image that pops into your head is what is happening. Magic and science intermingles to make wild imaginings of upside down cake full of helium or ink moving across a page to form a map possible. Despite heavy social content within this novel, it is a light read and much of it is spent within this wonderful world Tom Miller created.
