Summertime Book Events

21 Jul

Our Palmer Tribute at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs was a grand success. Folks came out to learn more about General Palmer and to visit with Dianne Hartshorn and myself, to discuss books and history. Once again, I found myself in a cemetery, surrounded by history and stories of pioneers. I had not previously been inside the little chapel, built in 1909, which turned out to be the perfect venue for the gathering.

I especially enjoyed visiting with my pals from Women Writing the West: Filter Press publisher Doris Baker, Doris McCraw, Gayle Gresham, and Dianne Hartshorn. It is always a pleasure to encounter and share time with friends who are members of this outstanding group of talented writers. For information about membership, go to: .

The busy summer continues with upcoming book events in Leadville, Parker, and Longmont in August. Leadville Boom Days is a special way to get in touch with the Old West. The parade down Harrison Street at 10 a.m. on August 8 will be full of horses and horse thieves, miners, dance hall girls, school marms, gamblers, you name it. If you go, stop by the Book Mine and say Howdy! I will be signing books there most of the afternoon.

    Hi, Brave One!
    I love buffalo meat for it is usually very rich and full of great flavor. However, I haven’t had the “south of the beltline” sample you describe! Good for you. I wonder if a really good BBQ sauce mighn’t have enhanced your dipping experience?

      Hello Arletta —

      I agree with you that a good BBQ sauce could easily enhance the “oyster” experience. Yakitori sauce might also be a good choice, although it may be harder to come by in Severance, Colorado! Anyway, it is an interesting thought.

      I enjoyed your comments — Joyce
