Tuesday, November 9Respected Colorado mystery author Stephanie Kanebrings back her recurring character, dyslexic trial lawyer Jackie Flowers, in a new courtroom thriller titled Seeds of Doubt, which finds Flowers defending a woman paroled after serving thirty years for the murder of a playmate and now suspected in a new child-murder case. As expected, things aren't necessarily as they seem. Get a sneak peek when Kane reads from and signs copies of her novel tonight at 7:30 p.m. tonight at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2955 East First Avenue. For information, call 303-322-7727 or visit www.tatteredcover.com.
Wednesday, November 10Few people can speak on the subject of integrity more forcefully than Lynn Brewer, the former Enron exec whose book, House of Cards, tells of her insider experiences at the corrupt corporation -- and who left there after her attempts to alert her supervisors and the U.S. government to corporate wrongdoing failed. Brewer is a perfect choice to provide the keynote address for CU-Boulder's Integrity Week events hosted by the university's student-run Honor Code Council to increase awareness of academic integrity. Perhaps it's just a fancy way of saying you know the difference between right and wrong, but a little integrity never hurt anyone: Hear the dynamic Brewer speak tonight at 7:30 p.m. on campus, in the Cristol Chemistry Building, room 140. Admission is free; for details, call 303-735-0990 or go to www.colorado.edu/academics/honorcode/.
