A&E Briefs: Library’s adult reading program celebrates Colorado authors
The Summit County Library presents Colorado authors Terry Wright and Robert Spiller on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 6:30 p.m. in the Buffalo Mountain Room at the County Commons in Frisco. Both will discuss their different writing genres with Beth Groundwater, Summit County author, and host of the event.
Wright lives in Lakewood with his wife, Bobette, and Yorkie, Taz. He enjoys country dancing, long walks, blockbuster movies, reading books and weekend outings in his motor home. He now writes full time, and serves as the editor and publisher of TWB Press. He was a board member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, and, for five years, he ran its annual Colorado Gold Writing Contest.
Over the past 20 years, he wrote eight novels (plus two in the works), one anthology, one non-fiction book, dozens of short stories and three screenplays, all of which have made the finals in various International screenwriting competitions. Now, TWB Press takes up most of his time, editing and publishing authors from California to Estonia.
Spiller was a longtime mathematics teacher who retired in 2010 after working in Monument, Ellicott and Denver. He launched several previous books at Black Cat Books. He has ideas for future Pinkwater mysteries but is now working on a novel he’s had in mind for a few years and describes it as “this book of my heart.”
This program is the culmination of the fall adult reading program, Stop Me if You’ve Read this One. The grand prize drawing for three baskets full of local merchandise will be awarded at the end of the program. The Summit County Library thanks local sponsors for their contributions to the grand prize baskets: Friends of the Library, Soupz On, Lakeside Bowling, Copper Mountain, Silverheels and Kemosabe, Round the Mountain, Lost Cajun, Foote’s Rest, Boatyard, A-Basin and Rocky Mountain Chocolates.
‘Paradise Waits’ movie premiere at Dillon Dam
The Dillon Dam Brewery premieres Teton Gravity Research’s new ski and snowboard film, “Paradise Waits” on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 8:30 p.m. “Paradise Waits” is the story of one weird winter and the people who celebrate it. For those who anticipate winter’s arrival with frothing mouths and the dreams of what may come, this past year came with an unfamiliar set of struggles as these perfect moments became more and more elusive. But for the TGR team, this only hardened their pursuit of winter’s rewards. Through the highs and lows of a curious season, they come to find that the moments found on the other side of adversity are the greatest moments of all. An $8 cover includes a ticket for door prizes, with a chance to win a pair of skis from Christy Sports plus other prizes.
