"Go As A River," by Gunnison educator Shelley Read, is set in Iola, Colorado. The town was wiped off the map in the 1960s to make way for the state's largest reservoir, Blue Mesa. Read joined Ryan Warner on stage at Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction for our reading series "Turn The Page with Colorado Matters."
