Turn the Page with Colorado Matters

Colorado Matters invites our audience to read along with host Ryan Warner. A few times per year, we choose a book and host a live Q&A with the author. Later, audio from the event is aired during an episode of Colorado Matters.

Every Turn the Page show is different from the last. We’ve picked books from a variety of genres, and we've hosted the events both in-person and on virtual platforms.

However, one thing is always consistent: the authors we choose are connected to Colorado.

We hope to see you at the next Turn the Page with Colorado Matters!

Upcoming Turn the Page with Colorado Matters

Our next Turn the Page event will be held as a virtual, live event Feb 23, 2023 at 6 p.m. The featured book is "Western Journeys" by Teow Lim Goh.

“Western Journeys” is fundamentally an immigrant story, as so many western stories are. In a shimmering new collection of essays, Denver author Teow Lim Goh explores her own journey here from Singapore. She also honors the many Chinese laborers who helped build The West… when they were allowed in. The book is a mix of travelog, history and autobiography. It feels extremely relevant as the nation again grapples with immigration and anti-Asian prejudice.

Pick up a copy of “Western Journeys” and join Colorado Matters for a virtual event on the evening of February 23 to meet the author and ask her your questions.

Register for the free event here.

The February Turn The Page event is supported by Shining Mountain Waldorf School.
