Boulder Junction Public Library hosts local author June 19

The Boulder Junction Public Library invites the community to a book talk by local author John R. Swift at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, June 19, in the community center.

Swift has released "Taconite," the latest book in his "Sheriff Gogebic" crime series. The book cover describes the plot: "A new taconite mine and pellet plant open in Steel County followed by murders, kidnappings and drug dealings. Sheriff Gogebic's number one suspect, an illegal immigrant and a DEA undercover agent, is arrested, but the federal government insists he be released. His wife and chief homicide assistant is eight months pregnant and her time is running out. Will his final witness, a young female victim of this culture, be able to help or not?"

Swift, raised in the Adirondacks, is the author of five books, four novels and one nonfiction. His last three novels, the Sheriff Gogebic series, are set in a fictional county in northern Wisconsin.

He holds undergraduate degrees of certificates from Syracuse and Roosevelt; post-graduate degrees or certificates from Rutgers and the University of Chicago (MBA and Basic Program in the Classics). He studied creative writing at the University of Chicago and University of Wisconsin's School of Arts.

In 1997, Swift retired as senior vice president following a following a 30-year career in commercial banking at the First National Bank of Chicago and LaSalle National Bank.

Swift is also an occasional columnist for the University of Wisconsin's Division of Continuing Studies Writing Program newsletter, Extra Innings. He lives with his wife of 54 years, in Arizona and Wisconsin.

This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For questions and further information, please call the library at 715-385-2050 or email info@boulderjunction.wislib.org.
