Jefferson County Public Library is excited to announce that Western Reboot: Authors of the Modern West will live stream at https://livestream.com/LoclyzMedia/WesternReboot on Saturday, January 27 starting at 4:30 p.m. MST. This free event "sold out" quickly and has several hundred people on a waiting list who can now watch and interact with the authors in an online setting.
Registration is now closed for Western Reboot.
Jefferson County Public Library and Westminster Public Library proudly present Western Reboot: Authors of the Modern West, an exciting evening celebrating the modern western mystery.
If your idea of the Western includes John Wayne and Clint Eastwood, it's time to take another look. In the 20th Century, yesterday's cowboys took a back seat as caped superheroes claimed the stage and shelves, but the Western is back.
While today's sheriffs have replaced their horses with trucks, much of the story telling remains the same. The good guys are still beating the bad guys and the west is as wild as ever in these contemporary tales.Schedule:
