Reading is about more than following a narrative or absorbing information; it can also be a profound shared experience that culminates in a better understanding of ourselves and each other. In that spirit, welcome to the Westword Book Club
, which celebrates the books that inspire Denver artists.
Kenn Amdahl is an author, an entrepreneur and something of a homespun polymath based in Broomfield. Frustrated by difficulties finding a publisher for his book, an educational manual leavened by bits of whimsy, Amdahl founded Clearwater Publishing in 1990. Since then, Clearwater has released eleven books. Westword recently sat down with Amdahl to talk about math and science, self-publishing, his favorite books and being part of a community of writers.
