Each week we will host a different Denver based African American author with a range of talents and topics, from a variety of genres. Join us for an exciting series, promising a little something for everyone!
Wednesday May 22nd @ 6:30pm Charlene Porter with Special Guest, Councilman Christopher Herndon
Charlene is the author of the #1 bestseller and NAACP Image Award finalist, Boldfaced Lies, “recommended” by Denver Public School Libraries as, “an important book about a shameful era of Colorado history.” Her first two sequels in this ongoing saga, featuring an achievement-oriented (mostly African American) family, companion books Eeny Meeny Miney Mo and If She Hollers, will be in book stores early 2014. The author will be selling copies of her book and donating the proceeds to the Denver Public Library. Prize drawing will be sponsored by the Wings Over the Rockies Air and Space Museum.
