Pat’s Walls Talk

17 Aug
Walls Talk

Pat Werner, Walls Talk, and Now You Know Bios.

Filter Press hosted a fabulous garden party last weekend to launch author Patricia Werner’s book, The Walls Talk: Historic House Museums of Colorado. The circumstances were unusual. A fine author and researcher, and a member of Women Writing the West, Pat passed away a couple of years ago following her struggle with cancer. Filter Press fulfilled their agreement to publish Pat’s book, which she struggled to finish during her final days. Much work was then required to update changing information. The result is a real treasure. The Walls Talk, a guide to 37 historic homes in Colorado, is a must-have title for all Colorado history enthusiasts.

Another interesting aspect of the garden party celebration was its location. It took place at the Molly Brown Summer House, a privately owned beautifully restored historic Denver home, which is listed in the book. A large tent on gorgeously landscaped grounds provided a comfortable setting for the celebration. The house is available for special events and was a perfect venue for the book event.

Pat’s goal was to not only share information about the homes, but to share information about the people who lived in those homes, to bring them to life. By doing so, her memory lives on. For more information about the book, go to: http://www.filterpressbooks.com.
