Colorado Authors Series: Carol Denker

Carol Denker

The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series presents Carol Denker, author of Autumn Romance: Stories and Portraits of Love After 50 on Saturday, February 5 at 2:00 p.m. at the Ross Cherry Creek Branch Library.

When Denver author Carol Denker fell deeply in love at age 62, she was startled to see how nothing in society reflected her experience. Not one image of an older couple in love! For almost three years, she traveled the U.S. seeking couples who had found true love in the second half of life--and photographers to take their pictures. The result is a paean to ordinary people who never gave up. Inside Autumn Romances' pages are beautiful black and white photos of mature couples and true tales of courage, coincidence, happiness, and healing.
