The Denver Post Pen & Podium Grant Program

What a treat it was, to listen to the conversation between the beloved and admired authors Frances Mayes (Under the Tuscan Sun) and Ruth Reichl (Tender at the Bone) on Monday, November 13, 2023 at Pen & Podium. Before they took their seats on stage, they joined us backstage to meet our charity partner for the evening and for a VIP reception. The Denver Public Library Friends Foundation received a grant for their work in supporting literacy programs in the Denver Public Libraries.
