Author Kelly Jones will launch her new book June 26

Idaho writer Kelly Jones will launch her latest book “Evel Knievel Jumps the Snake River Canyon … and Other Stories Close to Home” from 4-7 p.m. June 26 at Elevation 486, a fine dining restaurant in Twin Falls with a view of the Snake River Canyon. The title story is inspired by events of the summer of 1974. For each book sold, a donation will be given to the Magic Valley Arts Council.

You can enter a drawing for a $50 gift certificate for Elevation 486 on her author Facebook page. If she draws your name and you can’t make it to Twin, she’ll send you a signed copy of the book and then draw another name.

Jones grew up in Twin Falls and now lives in Boise.
