Amy Silverman, managing editor at one of our partner papers, Phoenix New Times, will be at the Tattered Cover on Colfax tonight, June 17, to talk about a very different publication: My Heart Can’t Even Believe It: A Story of Science, Love, and Down Syndrome, her book about her second daughter, Sophie, published this spring by Woodbine House.
She'll be reading at 7 p.m.at the bookstore at 2526 East Colfax Avenue (as always, admission is free — but you'll want to buy the book!). And in the meantime, you can read this free excerpt from her book published in Phoenix New Times.
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.
