Colorado Authors Series: Polly Letofsky

Polly Letofsky left her home and headed west across 4 continents and over 14,000 miles to become the first woman to walk around the world for breast cancer. Join us at the Bear Valley Branch Library on Saturday, November 13, at 2 p.m. as she discusses her book, 3MPH: The Adventures of One Woman’s Walk Around the World.

While strangers welcomed her into their homes, it was never an easy road. Polly struggled with earthquakes, muggings, languages, and even religious riots. Her extraordinary journey around the world on foot raised global awareness for breast cancer and is a testament to the indomitable human spirit.

Denver's Mobile Food Trucks Doing Their Part For Fashion

Three of Denver's favorite mobile food vendors will be on hand to celebrate Frock Out.

There is already a lot of buzz around this year's design competition, Frock Out. It is quickly becoming the defining example of a 'top-heavy' event. Since its theme works well with the notion of a three-ring circus at the county fairgrounds, we thought a little gilding of the lily was in order.
