This year’s event presents a thematic approach to “Water in the West: A Conversation,” featuring two authors, with two books. Authors Paolo Bacigalupi (The Water Knife) and Patty Limerick (A Ditch in Time: The City, the West and Water) will have a conversation moderated by Brian Werner (Northern Colorado Water Conservancy District). We're anticipating a lively conversation about this vital issue.
Books will be available for purchase and can be autographed after the conversation. Patrons may bring two books of their own for autographing.
Doors open at 6:15.
