Thank you for your interest in Wild Deadwood Reads! We’re pleased to have you attend our second fabulous event in Deadwood. We have many fun and adventurous outings planned for the weekend, and we hope you’ll be with us right from the start on Thursday evening. The link for our amazing hotel rates is at the bottom of this page.
We’ve reserved the 13,000 square foot Deadwood Mountain Grand Event Center for the 2018 signing. It’s on the second floor above the Non-Smoking casino and is accessible by escalator, elevator, and stairs. There’s lots of room for us at this lovely venue! Again this year, there are no refunds if you have to cancel, sorry.
We had a fabulous time in June this year, and 2018 promises to be even more exciting! Here’s what readers said about Wild Deadwood Reads 2017:
“It was so much fun. My husband and I took advantage of many of the extras and had a blast. I met so many great authors and purchased so many new books I can’t wait to start reading. I will definitely be coming back next year!” Heather Kachelmeier-Rhinehart
“Wild Deadwood Reads was an amazing experience, great authors, fun events leading up to the signing, well planned and organized. I would not hesitate to attend this event again.” Renee Waring
“I had a great time at Wild Deadwood Reads, meeting the authors, participating in the tours and taking in the great scenery in South Dakota. The games, etc. on the bus trips were great fun. And I really enjoyed the “Ride to Sturgis” on Thursday evening. And now after meeting the authors, I’ll be doing even more reading, adding in new authors that I haven’t read before meeting them.” Denise
