National Day of the Cowboy (and Cowgirl)

July 23 celebrates our western heritage.

Western writer J.R. Sanders has organized an event, “Read ’em Cowboy!” at the Barnes and Noble in Redlands, CA. Even if you can’t attend the event, you can support western writers and a worthy cause

By using vouchers found on the Facebook page, a percentage of your purchase at ANY Barnes and Noble store will go to the Western Writers of America‘s Homestead Foundation, which promotes the literary preservation of Western culture, history and traditions. If you buy online at Barnes and Noble  just enter the Bookfair ID# (10510444) when prompted at checkout.

And they like National Day of the Cowboy so much, they’re extending it for 5 days! You can make purchases in-store or online anytime from July 23rd through July 28th and B&N will honor the vouchers/Bookfair ID# .

Here’s a perfect excuse to add to your Western library (books, music, movies all count), get your Christmas shopping in early, and support Western culture to boot.

Leave a comment on this blog about what “cowboy” or “cowgirl” means to you or a favorite anecdote, and I will enter you into a drawing for your choice of a copy of Cowgirl Dreams or Follow the Dream.

  1. Thanks, Heidi, for this info! I write at B&N two days a week and wish I’d been tracking before because I’ve purchased a few audio books recently. Will take the vouchers with me this week. Enjoying the blog!

  2. I am enjoying your blog with all the people you interview. I like your articles, too. It is nice to see your book is out already. Lots of luck with that.

  3. Thanks, Heidi, for all your help in spreading the word about “Read ’em Cowboy!”, and for donating books for our raffle. They were a hit!
