It's hard to believe that this will be our 4th Annual Battle of the Books! Celebrate Winter of Reading on Jan. 19 at 6 p.m. with a virtual evening for book lovers, when five Denver area luminaries all promote a title (in just four minutes!) to be included in 1000 Books to Read Before You Die!

Our panel of literary gladiators includes local author and New York Times editors pick, Erika T. Wurth; Denver Council member (District 9) Darrell Watson; the Interim manager of Focus Points of COMAL Heritage Food Incubator, Senyabou Sohai; local leader and founder of the Chicano Arts Movement Carlos Santistevan; and the owners of Fiction Beer Company Christa & Ryan Kilpatrick.  

Register now to ensure you get the Zoom link for the event, and so you can vote! Featured titles will also be available from The Bookies

P.S. Sit back with a Book Nook Spiced Cream Ale and watch the gladiators battle at the Fiction Beer in-person Watch Party at the Colfax location!
