Library Author Series features historical fiction about Denver

Bud Werner Memorial Library presents an evening with Randi Samuelson-Brown, author of “The Beaten Territory,” a novel of darkly engaging historical fiction set in the underworld of lower downtown Denver in the 1890s, at 7 p.m. June 14 in Library Hall. The book has received critical acclaim, including a 5280 Editor’s Pick and a bookseller’s top choice at the Tattered Cover bookstore in Denver.

Set in Denver during an era when the downtown district was lousy with gaming parlors, saloons, brothels and various other dens of iniquity, “The Beaten Territory” drips with the intrigue of what was still considered the Wild West back in the 1890s. The latest novel by Samuelson-Brown tells the story of Annie Ryan, a Market Street madam who gets swept up in Denver’s seedy underworld when she meets laudanum-addled socialite Lydia Chambers. Soon enough, a shocking murder shakes this world of booze-besotted good-time girls to its very core.

Books will be available for sale and signing at this free Library Author Series event courtesy of Off the Beaten Path Bookstore. Visit steamboatlibrary.org/events for more information.

Flamenco is passed on within the family in the Gypsy community that bore Carmen Amaya, the greatest flamenco dancer of all time. Juanito is about to fulfill his dream of getting a pair of red boots that will make him a true flamenco dancer. His uncle Coco, a legendary singer in the flamenco tablaos of Barcelona, will help him achieve it.

Her grand-niece, Karime, comes to Barcelona to pick up her trail. The journey is only complete when Winy, her mother, joins her from Mexico to prepare a show with some of the city’s biggest talent. Together they discover the spirit of Bajari.
