We are delighted to welcome Jamie Horton, acclaimed actor, director, and writer -- currently an Associate Professor at Dartmouth College -- for our annual holiday reading. We'll celebrate the spirit of the holidays with warm drinks, and yummy treats provided by the Tattered Cover Cafe, as Jamie reads from several holiday classics. While this event is free, guests are encouraged to help us celebrate the spirit of giving this holiday season by bringing a new or gently used book as a donation to our annual Children's Book Drive which benefits Reach Out and Read Colorado.
