Less a performance-oriented event than a celebration of childhood reading, this inaugural fest — sponsored by the mighty Tattered Cover book stores — zeroes in on middle grade books and authors, but subsequent years will include picture books, according to organizers. With its partners at OMG BookFest! this free gathering brings games, activities, readings and meetings to the Tattered Cover on East Colfax Avenue. Authors include David Bowles, Julia DeVillers, Stuart Gibbs, Shannon Hale, Varian Johnson, Sarah Mlynowski, Brandon Mull, Lauren Myracle, Courtney Sheinmel and many others. May 19, tatteredcover.com.

This is a picture of Nissim Catan's store in NYC, just before he moved to Denver in 1906. My great-grandfather is Nissim Catan and he's on the left. I'm not sure who the guy with the killer hat and mustache is on the right.
In 1926, Col. Arthur Hart recognized the need for additional housing near Fitzsimons Army Hospital and built Hart’s Park Cottage Camp (later known as the Dutch Mill Cottage Court) near the intersection of Colfax Avenue and Peoria Street. The 1930s saw an increase in traffic along US 40 and a boom in the local cottage camps on Colfax Avenue, so Col. Hart added a neon-lit windmill to draw tourists. This is a postcard of the Dutch Mill, which was used as the motel office, a grocery and a barber shop throughout the years.
