Book Talk With Author Michael J. Spencer
Michael Spencer will be at the Denver Central Library to discuss his latest publication "Hollywood of the Rockies: Colorado, the West & America’s Film Pioneers" and give his debut behind-the-scenes account of the incredible story he uncovered through his research at Denver Public Library. His documentary of the same name was released in 1997.
“The idea for this book was literally born in the Western History Department of the Denver Public Library,” explains Michael Spencer, “I was sifting through a box of photos for another project and came upon images from pre-WWI movies filmed in Colorado. This is when I realized that I needed to tell the story of this completely forgotten slice of American film that had slipped through the cracks of public consciousness.”
The author talk, followed by a book signing is free and open to the public. A limited number of copies will be available for purchase.
