Author, Author!

Fiction writers from the highbrow literary world don’t always qualify as superstars, but T.C. Boyle would be an exception: His reckless flash, flamboyant persona and elegant turns of phrase demand that kind of attention. So it’s always news when Boyle comes to town for a book signing, even if the event is all the way up in Boulder: Love him or leave him, Boyle will be signing copies of his last two books — the novel The Women, which fictionalizes the life of Frank Lloyd Wright as seen by the women in it, and Wild Child, a new collection of short stories tinged by Boyle’s adopted milieu of Southern California — tonight at 7:30 p.m. in the upstairs ballroom of the Boulder Book Store, 1107 Pearl Street. Admission is free with the purchase of either book; otherwise, there is a charge of $5. Get tickets online at http://boulderbookstore.indiebound.com/tcboyleticket020910 or call 303-447-2074 for details.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
