Looking for a good book to get lost in this summer? We have some recommendations that are either about the west, or by authors in the region. Joining us is Cathy Langer, a buyer for the Tattered Cover Bookstores in metro Denver. Also, from Steamboat Springs is Ron Krall, we speak with the owner of Off The Beaten Path Bookstore.

 

Here are the books we discussed:

“The Bird Saviors,” by William J. Cobb

“Little Century,” by Anna Keesey

Children’s Book: “When You Wish Upon a Star,”  by Judith Collins and Illustrator Eric Puybaret
