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

Last year we reported that Denver author Gregory Hill, a library book-buyer and part-time musician, was a finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award; the winners, as determined by public voting, would get a Penguin Group publishing contract and a sweet $15,000 advance. Cut to the chase: Hill, one of two hopeful authors awarded nationally, won in the adult fiction category.

And now, months later, he'll appear, triumphant, at the Tattered Cover tonight to read from the winning book: East of Denver, the somewhat comic saga of a man and his senile father struggling together in the middle of nowhere, on Colorado's eastern plains. That's close to home in more ways than one, and based on the prize-winning public feedback, it promises to be be a very entertaining read.

Meet Hill at 7:30 p.m. tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Colfax; for more information visit the Tattered Cover online or call 303-322-7727.

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.
