Book Events in Colorado

Héctor Tobar

  • Thursday, March 30, at the Denver Public Library's Corky Gonzales Branch, 1498 Irving St., Denver
  • Friday, March 31, at the Fort Collins Hilton at 425 W Prospect Rd., Fort Collins 80526.
Both programs begin at 7 p.m. There is no admission charge, thanks to Colorado State University, which is presenting Tobar in partnership with the Colorado Authors League and the Denver Public Library.

Tobar will read from and discuss his award-winning account of the trapped Chilean miners, Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free.

Héctor Tobar is the author of four books, including the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestseller Deep Down Dark. A finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, Deep Down Dark is published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux, by Sceptre in the UK, Harper Collins Canada, and Belfond in France.

Tobar plunges the reader into this world of uncertainty with visceral, present-tense prose and careful pacing . . . Whether the story is completely new to you, or if you were one of the millions glued to the news reports and wondering, will they make it--physically, emotionally, spiritually--you'll be greatly rewarded to learn how they did.”
Mac McClelland, The New York Times Book Review 

Nely Galán

The Denver Network of Las Comadres & Friends National Latino Book Club invites you to a book club meeting on Saturday, March 25, 2017 at 1:00pm at Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales Branch Library in the Eugene Lucero Meeting Room, 1498 N. Irving Street at W. Colfax Ave., Denver, 80204. The March 2017 book of the month to be discussed is Self Made: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant and Rich in Every Way by Nely Galán

An immigrant and self-made media mogul, Galán was the first Latina President of Entertainment for a U.S. television network (Telemundo). She is an Emmy Award-winning producer of over 600 episodes of television in Spanish and English, including the FOX hit reality series The Swan.

After becoming self-made on her own terms, Galán has made it her mission to teach women—regardless of age or background—how they too can become entrepreneurs. Her New York Times best-selling book, Self Made: Becoming Empowered, Self-Reliant, and Rich in Every Way, was published in 2016. Inspired by the new revolution in women’s entrepreneurship led by multicultural women, Galán wrote the book as a manifesto to ignite the SELF MADE movement, uniting all women on a quest for an economic future they control.
