Go Denver Sister-Writers!

"Boldfaced Lies," a self-published first novel by Charlene Porter has been nominated for a NAACP image award. The book deals with issues of race and identity in Denver when the Klan reigned supreme. You wouldn't think of the Klan having much of an influence in Colorado, but it did. (A former coworker of mine from a wealthy local family even shared that her grandfather was a member.) You can read a great article with Porter here.

Kim Reid's memoir, No Place Safe, will be out in October and she's already agreed to do a Pajama Chat here at that time. Stay tuned for more!
