Zachary Lazar has a unique voice in American literature. He writes beautiful prose that crosses freely from fiction to reality, blending real people and histories with characters that are born in his own imagination. He's a fascinating writer to watch and he is visiting Denver Public Library this week.
If there is truth to the writer's credo, "write what you know" -- Kristen Ashley is leading an exciting life! You'll have a chance to meet this prolific and popular author at the library this September.
Kristen Ashley has a soft spot for the Denver Public Library. She started her writing career here in Denver and often wrote and did research in our libraries. And now she wants to say thank you to DPL and to all of her loyal readers. Kristen is coming to Denver for a special event to meet her fans and raise funds for one of her favorite places - Denver Public Library.
