Closing the book on the next One Book, One Denver

Today is the deadline to vote for the next pick in the

One Book, One Denver

program. Your options:

Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet


The Art of Racing in the Rain

, and

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks


Jef Otte wasn't thrilled by the choices, following in a long tradition of Westword writers who'd rather see more Colorado-centric books by Jack Kerouac, or Mark Twain, or Kent Haruf, or David Wroblewski -- if you cut off the last hundred pages of The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, and forget that he set it in the Midwest.

And because we're not just a bunch of carpers, we'll be coming up with our own summer reading program. But in the meantime, you still have a book to choose for Denver.

Vote here...if you dare.
