This year, we’re excited to announce a virtual Authors Day via Zoom featuring two outstanding Colorado authors and in-demand presenters: Pam Houston and Jeri Norgren!
Proceeds from this event will benefit our AAUW scholarship fund which awards scholarships to area junior and senior college students on the basis of need, accomplishments, and promise.
Pam Houston is an award-winning author, professor, and Colorado rancher whose books include:
Her best-selling debut novel, Cowboys are My Weakness.
Deep Creek, Finding Hope in the High Country, a tender and funny memoir, and profound meditation on bonding with nature and neighbors at her high-country ranch.
Air Mail: Letters of Politics, Pandemics and Place, her newest title and a tribute to both wilderness and a friendship that developed during COVID times.
Jeri L. Norgren is a fifth-generation Coloradan and author of the beautifully illustrated and impeccably researched new book Colorado’s Highest: The History of Naming the 14,000-Foot Peaks. Ms. Norgren collaborated with the well-known Colorado photographer John Fielder, and the artist Robert L. Wogrin who contributed oil paintings and sketches reproduced in the book. Colorado’s Highest combines a fascinating historical narrative, with ravishing views of each of the 58 Colorado fourteeners.
