Hadley recently returned to Denver after a triumphant appearance at San Diegos Comic-Con in July, where she was nominated for two prestigious Eisner Awards (for Best Cover Artist and Best Penciller/Inker Team along with inker Richard Friendly). And shell appear at 3 p.m. at the Tattered Cover today as part of the Local Flavor Fest. The event is being thrown by the Lowenstein CulturePlex and the Mile High Business Alliance as a way of recognizing and celebrating locally owned businesses.
Besides Hadleys book signing and question-and-answer session, the fest, which runs from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will feature a raffle, food, vendors, and music. Says Hadley, I'm a big proponent of local businesses. I think they provide better food, better merchandising and better service. They have to, or they wouldnt succeed. I live downtown, and I love where I live, and I love the unique experience I get by going to places I couldnt find anywhere else.
Tattered Cover is located at 2526 East Colfax Avenue; for more information, call 303-322-7727 or go to www.tatteredcover.com.
