When worldwide walker and Coloradan Polly Letofsky decided to take a hike, she covered 14,000 or so miles, with the goal of spreading awareness about breast cancer. Sometimes the challenges and hardships of the journey might have taken her off course philosophically, but now that she's been back a while and has authored a book about the trek, 3MPH: A Woman's Walk Around the World, Letofsky is right back on track.
She's one of eighteen Colorado authors who will be signing books tonight at the Colorado Christmas Book Festival, an event to benefit Sense of Security, a nonprofit organization that provides financial support to people fighting cancer.
The all-woman lineup includes authors of everything from self-help tomes and children's tales to books on how to serve your community; mingle from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Proof Niteclub, while enjoying the Proof's endless taco bar. Admission is free; visit the Facebook event page for details.
