Interview with Colorado Book Award Finalist, Adam Houle

November 1st, 2018

I was fortunate to meet Adam Houle when he came to read as a Finalist for the Colorado Book Award Finalist at Denver’s BookBar. Adam and I were introduced afterwards through mutual friends.

These pages provide a crucial, unblinking look at how patriarchy affects society on a person-to-person level. Khadijah Queen kindly shared a few thoughts... Read More

March Events @ Denver’s BookBar

March 3rd, 2018

This is the idyllic spot for anybody who loves reading, eating and drinking, especially altogether. Imagine combining the frugal indulgence of happy hour with silent reading, literary trivia, a featured reading, or book club. You can do all of this (& more!) at BookBar. This trendy spot features a delicious menu riddled with clever item names (that also serve as literary allusions), such as Much Fondue About Nothing, Melville Melt, and Egg-ar Allen Pesto and libations including a list of local options.With its impressive array of events, BookBar is certainly a hub that both hosts &... Read More
