    Denver Talks

    In 2017, we partnered with NEA Big Read and the City & County of Denver for an eight-week, city-wide reading initiative. Through book talks, performances, and other events, we encouraged Denver-area residents to read and discuss Claudia Rankine's book, Citizen. The project culminated in an on-stage conversation between Rankine and Mayor Michael B. Hancock, which drew more than 2,000 attendees.
