Steamboat Selected for World Book Night

Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.” ~Sir Richard Steele

This is the third Tuesday of  February. A lot of independent publishers in this town know exactly what that means. It is time for our monthly meet-up group to gather and network about all things independent publishing here in Steamboat Springs,Colorado.

For those who may not be able to attend our get together at 4:00pm today, I am going to release some important news.  

I am so pleased to announce that Steamboat Springs, Colorado has been chosen as a select community to be involved with UNESCO’s World Book Night on April 23rd. 

At a meeting two months ago, I brought the idea forward of joining in with World Book Night.  SHe Writes Steamboat members were enthused.  I submitted an application  along with a short essay about why our community should be included in this event designed to encourage literacy among light or non-readers.

The organizers of World Book Night have determined that  Steamboat Springs, Colorado is a community that values literacy , reading and writing. We will be included in this world-wide event.

Thank you in advance to members of SHe Writes Steamboat who have volunteered to participate on the night of April 23rd. More information will follow soon about the title of the book our members will be distributing in our town and the organizations that will benefit from this literacy event. 

If you are interested in becoming a member of SHe Writes Steamboat, join us this afternoon at 4pm at City Café on 10th Street. Or  email me at We will add you as a Facebook friend of SHe Writes Steamboat.
