Elk River Books Presents Northward Dreams

By Novelist Craig Lancaster

Award-winning Billings novelist, Craig Lancaster, returns to Livingston’s Elk River Books to read from and discuss his new book, Northward Dreams, on Thursday, April 11th at 7 pm.

Northward Dreams weaves together four timelines to depict the dreams and despair of several generations of a Western family, from the 1950s to the 2010s. According to the publisher, “In this novel, Lancaster, who has been hailed as ‘one of Montana’s most important writers,’ goes deep into how history shapes and confines us and how hope sometimes stubbornly abides.”

Jonathan Evison, author of Lawn Boy, describes the novel as “sheer reading pleasure; at turns funny, heartbreaking, suspenseful, and cathartic. For years, Lancaster has been delivering gritty, unforgettable human dramas about everyday people navigating troubled pasts and unknown futures, and Northward Dreams just might be his best effort to date.”

Lancaster is the author of ten novels and a collection of short stories, including two High Plains Book Award-winning titles: 600 Hours of Edward and And It Will Be a Beautiful Life.

Elk River Books is located at 122 South 2nd Street, in downtown Livingston. The free event will be followed by a book signing and reception. For more information, send an email to or call (406) 333-2330.
