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.

Pearl St., Denver (Council district 7) - No Spanish interpretation Mar. 15, 5:30 - 7 p.m., DSST Stapleton High School, 2000 Valentia St., Denver (Council district 8) You can also participate online here: https://www.denvergov.org/content/denvergov/en/denveright/news/2018/blueprint-online-workshop-feb-2018.html
March 15, 2018 from 5:30 - 7 p.m., DSST Stapleton High School, 2000 Valentia St., Denver. Based on your input in Denveright’s Blueprint Denver planning effort, city planners are working on a new approach to managing land use in our city. The new concept acknowledges that all places in our city are constantly evolving in pursuit of becoming complete in their own way — not just through enabling or limiting development, but through quality-of-life infrastructure like safe sidewalks, housing options, transit access, parks and open space. Diversity, affordability and good urban design/architecture are key to complete neighborhoods as well.
