Those interested in western history and good stories will likely find a book-signing featuring author Diana Allen Kouris to be an event not to miss.

Kouris will talk about her latest book, "Nighthawk Rising: A Biography of Accused Cattle Rustler Queen Ann Bassett of Brown's Park," at a book-signing at 6 p.m. Friday at Out West Books, 533 Main St.
