#1 Bestselling author C.J. Box, famous for his popular Joe Pickett series, is set to receive the reward for Best Western Novel during tonight’s Western Heritage Awards!
The novel that secured Box’s win, Endangered, was released in 2015 and is the fifteenth novel starring the fictional Wyoming game warden and his family, and reached as high as #3 on the New York Times bestsellers list under the Hardcover Fiction category.
We offer a huge CONGRATULATIONS to C.J. Box, who absolutely deserves to take home the trophy–which in this case is a nifty bronze sculpture of a cowboy on horseback.
The Western Heritage Awards, hosted by the National Cowboy Museum in Oklahoma, is designed to “celebrate the legacy [and] great works by those who contribute to the understanding and appreciation of the American West,” and will be shown as a live webcast on Saturday, April 18, at 7:00pm CT (8:00pm ET) on the Wrangler Network. You can watch the awards show for free, here.
Congrats again to C.J., and if you haven’t already don’t forget to pick up a copy of his latest Joe Pickett novel, Off The Grid, which came out earlier this year.
Here’s a tweet from C.J. himself, showin off his new hardware!
