TGIF: Fun writerly stuff to do this weekend

Suspense novelists, true-crime aficiandos, and Idaho history buffs won’t want to miss Hanged: A History of Idaho Executions, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. at Hope Memorial Community Center, 415 Wellington Pl., Hope. Kathy Deinhart Hill, a retired teacher living in McCall, will present the life stories and criminal careers of the 26 men who faced Idaho’s justice system and were given the ultimate penalty—death by hanging. The program is free and open to the public; funded in part by the Idaho Humanities Council. Dessert and coffee follow the presentation. 208-264-5481.

Local author Bonnie Clark will sign copies of her cookbook, Back of the Boat Gourmet Cooking, which is full of great recipes and tips for serving up easy meals whether afloat, at poolside, or in the backyard. Sept. 25, 1-3 p.m., Auntie’s Bookstore, 402 W. Main Ave., Spokane. 509-838-0206.

Looking for a good read? Until September 27 you can download a FREE e-book: J. A. Jance’s suspenseful thriller, Hour of the Hunter.
