Colorado Authors Series: Michael Altman, No Simple Highway

No Simple Highway

The Fresh City Life My Branch Colorado Authors Series continues this Saturday, November 12 at 11:00 a.m. at Schlessman with Michael Altman, who will discuss his book No Simple Highway.

No Simple Highway is a psychological thriller set in Denver in 1972. It deals with combat trauma, spiritual healing, and parapsychology in an action-packed and thought-provoking look at social issues that are as relevant today as they were in the 1970s.

Mr. Altman is a retired Vietnam Air Force psychiatrist who lives in Denver. He has a long-term interest in mystical spirituality. He is currently practicing what he calls the four "Gs"--guitar, golf, gardening, and keeping up with a Golden Retriever.
