Three Book and Poetry Events for the Week of August 11-17

Categories: Literature

Spencer Quinn reads from Paw and Order: A Chet and Bernie Mystery Tuesday in Highlands Ranch.

They challenge your mind or simply tickle it, and like the best travels, memories stay with you long after the trip is over. Without leaving metro Denver this week, you can venture into prose and poetry of the American West, explore a mystery on four legs and dig into a trove of Colorado authors.
