Pack up your family and friends and head to historic Deadwood, South Dakota June 18th, 2022!

It’s not just Western writers — we’ve got books for everyone in the family! Deadwood, South Dakota June 18th, 2022!

The Fifth Annual Wild Deadwood Reads event in Deadwood, South Dakota in 2022 is sure to be as exciting as the first four events in 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021. We will again be at the beautiful Lodge at Deadwood. And in 2022, we’re thrilled to bring you more authors, more events, and more opportunities to see the amazing sights in Deadwood and the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Our multi-author, multi-genre Book Fair is just one of the exciting events happening next June. We’ve got Wild Bill’s Days going on right in town, a basket raffle to support a local nonprofit organization, Breakfast With the Authors, a fun evening enjoying libations while listening to authors reading their favorite scenes from their books, and much more. Join us for a Legendary weekend!

About Wild Deadwood Reads

Your hosts, Ginger Ring and Linda Rae Sande, are authors. Authors who have each attended many, many, MANY book signings, fairs, and author/reader events. We learned the hard way what doesn’t work (and makes authors angry!) and what does work (and makes both the authors and the attendees smile!)

As true hosts, Ginger and Linda Rae take pleasure and pains to make every person they interact with on Wild Deadwood Reads a satisfied customer. This has given your hosts a sterling reputation in the industry, and as the authors and readers who participated in the June 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2021 events will tell you, Wild Deadwood Reads is a rising star!



Check out the authors who will be coming to Deadwood next June, and add your name to the list by completing the author interest form for 2022:
