A first lady of modern feminism, Gloria Steinem is still ticking at 82.

A $25 voucher, available online or at the door, not only gets you into the event hosted by the Boulder Book Store, but includes a pre-signed copy of the book’s paperback edition.

Wondercrump Weekend, Roald Dahl Birthday Parties
Tattered Cover Colfax Avenue and Aspen Grove
1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, September 17
Free

Fans of Roald Dahl’s funny and wicked fictional universe will celebrate the late children’s author’s 100th birthday across the nation over a Wondercrump Weekend designed to appeal to an intergenerational legion of fans — but especially kids. The Tattered Cover is jumping in with parties at both the Colfax Avenue and Aspen Grove locations, including games and giveaways, but celebrants in Littleton are invited to first take in an 11:30 a.m. screening of Wes Anderson’s treatment of Dahl’s Fantastic Mr. Fox at the Alamo Drafthouse. Hang on to your ticket — it’s good for 20 percent off any Dahl title at the Aspen Grove store. And there’s more good news: The Tattered Cover will donate another 10 percent of your Dahl purchase to Reach Out and Read Colorado's early-literacy programs.
