Ms. Barbara will be reading from this year's selection for the Youth One Book One Denver. This year's chosen book is The Capitol Mystery Ghost, which takes place right here in Denver, during and after a school field trip to the state capitol building. The program is geared to 9-12-year-olds. You'll have snacks during the reading, and everyone will get a book to take home. If we don't have enough copies of the featured book for everyone, there will be other books to choose from.
Join Ted Engelmann, an American War veteran, as he tells the story of how he returned two small diaries to the family of a North Vietnamese woman doctor, who died in South Viet Nam. Engelmann also shares personal slides during the presentation.
