Enjoy martinis, merrymaking and spirited conversation at the 2011 Evil Companions Literary Awards, set for Thursday, April 14 at the Oxford Hotel.
This year's award goes to Ted Conover, a beloved Denver native, nationally acclaimed author, and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. His works cover a vast array of subjects, from the rarefied air of Aspen, to riding the rails with hoboes in titles such as The Routes of Man, Newjack, Coyotes, Whiteout, and Rolling Nowhere.
Featuring signature martinis, live music and a scrumptious buffet, and benefiting the Denver Public Library, Evil Companions is a literary event not to be missed. For tickets, visit www.dplfriends.org or call 720-865-2050.
