B2 Conference Center

In honor of a great local poet, Jake Adam York, whose untimely death in December of 2012, left an entire community of family, friends and students reeling. York was a professor at Denver University and published three books of poetry. He was a great proponent of Southern cooking and especially BBQ; one of his finest poems is about the ways in which food brings us together. And we come together for Jake Adam York – to hear some of his poems read out loud, have a little lemonade and sample some southern cooking. All are welcome!

And before Paris and Anna Nicole, there was Dianne Brill, the club girl who was always out on the town, doing nothing, being seen. But as David M. Friedman shows in his new book, Wilde in America, the true inventor of modern celebrity lived and died long before any of those fame seekers.
