The book, which Rice edited, is an ode to these treasured literary hangouts, including the Tattered Cover, which was the subject of an essay by Colorado mystery writer Stephen White, who wrote that his relationship with the store led to a life of writing.
“Reading and learning and filling your head is a really social thing,” Rice says. “There’s always going to be a place where like-minded people gather to experience not only the books, but each other.”
Experience that literary community tonight at the Tattered Cover, 2526 East Colfax Avenue, with a reception and refreshments at 7 p.m. and a reading and signing by White at 7:30 p.m. Visit www.tatteredcover.com for more information.
