Hailey’s award-winning author Julie Weston will read from her book “Miner’s Moon” at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 9, at the Hailey Public Library.

The free book discussion will be held at Hailey Town Center West, the old Copy & Print building behind the library at 116 S. River St. in Hailey.

And Julie promises to show slides about mining and bootlegging in Idaho. In addition, she says, she'll have some good news to announce that evening! If that doesn't bring people out....!

“Miner’s Moon” is the fourth book in Weston’s Nellie Burns and Moonshine mystery series. This particular book takes Burns, a crime photographer and her black Lab Moonshine to the rough-and-tumble mine shafts of the Kellogg-Wallace area in Northern Idaho during the 1920s.

“Julie’s page-turning mysteries are always great fun to read, partly because they’re based in Idaho,” said Kristin Fletcher, the library’s programs and engagement manager.

Weston grew up in northern Idaho, practicing law in Seattle. Her memoir of place, The Good Times Are All Gone Now: Life, Death and Rebirth in an Idaho Mining Town,” received honorable mention in the 2009 Idaho Book of the Year Award competition. Her short stories and essays have been published in such magazines as IDAHO Magazine, The Threepenny Review, River Styx and Rocky Mountain Game & Fish.

Her mysteries, all published by Five Star Publishing, have won awards: Moonshadows, which came out in 2015 and depicted Nellie in the area surrounding Ketchum, was a finalist in the May Sarton Literary Award. The 2016 book Basque Moon, which took place in the Stanley Basin, won the 2017 WILLA Literary Award in Historical Fiction. The 2019 mystery Moonscape, which took place at Craters of the Moon and Ketchum, placed third in the Foreword INDIES Awards.
