At 6:30 p.m. on Friday, May 6, the bookstore celebrates 40 and Forward at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 2201 Dexter Street, with a silent auction including autographed first-edition books, antiquarian treasures and items donated by other local businesses and book-store supporters. Retired Denver Post staff writer and Murder at the Brown Palace author Dick Kreck is tonights guest of honor, but the real pull is the same as it ever was. This community is extremely literate and has wide and varied interests, Stickney says. I think this is why the bookstore works and has had such longevity: Its a community in every best sense of the word.
Admission to the celebration is $10; for more information, call 303-355-8508.
