Staff Report

LOS ALAMOS — The Western Author Party & Signing event at Bedford Winery, which was postponed last month due to a COVID-19 outbreak, has been rescheduled for Saturday, Aug. 20, at the winery.

This will be a Western-themed book signing party, featuring R. Lawson Gamble and his third novel in the “Johnny Alias” Western series, titled “Johnny and the Comanche.” His previous titles in the “Johnny Alias” series, as well as books from his “Zack Tolliver, FBI” series will also be available.

Also scheduled is Nipomo author Wanda Snow Porter, whose Western children’s books (such as “Riding Babyface,” “Spurs For Jose,” and “Capturing Time”) are sold at Dana Adobe and have resided in the top 100 in that category on Amazon.

Gamble said the authors will sign their books at the event and may even read a passage or two from them.

Attendees are encouraged to wear their cowboy hats and boots for the event on the outdoor patio at Bedford Winery, and listen to country and western music performed by Bud Christoferson. 

Those present can enjoy a glass of wine, visit with old friends and neighbors and meet new ones, listen to the music, sample some munchies, and take away a free audiobook of “The Curse Of Matilija,” narrated by actor Case Matthews while supplies last. 

Those planning to attend are encouraged RSVP to winemaker@bedfordwinery.com although drop-ins will be welcome also. 

Bedford Winery is located at 448 Bell Street, Los Alamos. For more information, call (805) 344-2107.

Gamble is also planning a book signing Sept. 10 at The Bookstore, located at 1113 North H Street, Ste. Q, in Lompoc. For more information on his books and appearances go to rlawsongamble.com.
