Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

We live in a world of letters -- letters in books and on billboards and TV screens, and appearing clickety-clackety as our fingertips conjure them out of keyboards. But author Kitty Migaki found characters lurking in more unusual places -- among the angles and curves and cornices of buildings -- and that's how Alphabet Denver came to be. Migaki will share her picture-book, which uses GPS as a component for families to discover the places it portrays, tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch. Following is a sampler of sites she discovered while researching the book, including a sneak peek at a few of the page spreads.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
