Book Shepherd Client Barbara Sternberg is Being Honored!

It thrills … I mean THRILLS mewhen one of my authors hits the HOME RUN. The latest is Barbara Sternberg with her wonderful book: Anne Evans-A Pioneer in Colorado’s Cultural History. First, Barbara wrote this as she kissed the big 90! Second, it’s won many book awards. Third, FINALLY, Anne Evans is being recognized throughout Colorado for the many achievements that her path generated – literally affecting every resident at some time. How fabulous is that? And what a wonderful feat Barbara and her words have completed and been cheered for.  I’m at the head of the line and her Book Shepherd.

I encourage all of you to support Barbara – get the Anne Evans book. I guarantee that you will marvel at what this pioneering and visionary woman achieved. And do post a stellar review on Amazon.

The Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame recently announced their 2016 Inductees, both contemporary and historical. Anne Evans is one of the four historical nominees to be inducted at a Gala dinner on March 16, 2016.

Colorado Business Hall of Fame
Anne Evans inducted on January 28, 2016

The Colorado Business Hall of Fame will hold its annual black tie event on January 28, 2016, at which it will induct six new members. These male and female laureates are both contemporary and historical. Anne Evans is among this number.

About the specific reasons for selecting Anne Evans for this signal honor, the Colorado Business Hall of Fame cites the following:

Anne Evans played a major role in helping develop many of the institutions that transformed Denver into a viable modern city. Among them are the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Public Library, the restoration of the Central City Opera House, and the development of the Central City Summer Opera Festival. All of these cultural jewels required tireless and ingenious fund raising . . .

Anne Evans was truly a business woman of her time whose many contributions helped define Denver as the business and cultural center it is today.
