Celebrate four of Hollywood’s greatest fashion designers with the films that are part of their legend and part of the ‘superstructure’ of their stars. Joan Crawford was known for her exaggerated shoulders; this was an innovation of MGM’s main designer, Adrian. Marlene Dietrich is inextricably linked with exotic costumes and exquisitely tailored men’s tuxedos; she was ably dressed by Paramount’s legendary Travis Banton. Edith Head helped to create Grace Kelly’s film ‘look’ and she is still remembered for her waspy, Vassar-girl glad rags in Rear Window.

One of the powerful, new voices in transgender literature, Imogen Binnie is a writer to watch. She'll be visiting Denver Public Library for an author talk and book signing this August. Nevada, Binnie's first novel, is the darkly comedic story of Maria Griffiths, a young trans woman living in New York City and trying to stay true to her punk values while working retail. When she finds out her girlfriend has lied to her, the world she thought she’d carefully built for herself begins to unravel, and Maria sets out on a journey that will most certainly change her forever.
