SoHa Authors Tell It at the CO Authors' Program

Image
SoHa Authors Pam O'Mara (Suggestion Please: Denver's Secret Improv Culture) and Nancy Ringel (What They Could Not Forget) had their 6 minutes of local fame last Sunday, 10/23 at the Colorado Authors' Program portion of the Jewish Arts, Authors, Movies and Music (JAAMM) Festival. Both authors, along with the other seven authors in the program that afternoon, talked about their books and why they were compelled to write them. A good time was had by all-- a full house. Later the audience was able to purchase copies and talk with the authors during the book signing session.

JAAMM continues through Sun, 11/3 at the Mizel Center.
