Discover Colorado Author Gems of the Night on September 11

The Colorado Author Gems of the Night

What an evening the 2023 Authors’ Hall of Fame Induction Gala promises to be. The visual glitz of being “dressed up” is always beyond fun. The location is central and easy to get to—Doubletree Hilton at 25 and Orchard.

The schmoozing and reconnecting will be the best.

You will absorb the positive energy vibrating within the ballroom that will be beyond words—I promise.

And the Authors … what an array of talent there will be. Doing what they loved to do … writing for their readers … and sharing their ahas and stories with you. Twelve will be inducted.

Dom Testa is back, returning as our emcee. Always fun. Always with insights. Always the perfect side dish for an extraordinary evening.

New this year is our Silent Auction—amazing “baskets” of goodies to bid on. Two of 2019 Inductee John Fielder’s eye-candy and beautifully framed photographs (16 x 24) are included with your bidding options.

Why come? Why read their bios? Why? … you ask.

Because …

  • It’s about inspiration.
  • It’s about celebration.
  • It’s about discovering new voices and faces—ones that you may not have known, yet. They will open a world that you will delight in.
  • It’s fun.

It’s all happening on Monday, September 11th … networking starts at 5 pm, doors open at 5.30. Dinner is at 6 and the evening closes at 9 pm.

My blog and Call to Action for you this week is to read all this year’s Authors’ Hall of Fame Inductee bios on the Hall’s website. And ask: What can I learn from these amazing men and women who are being inducted into the Authors Hall of Fame?

You have an opportunity that happens every two years. Meet the authors. Maybe win all their books. This is the time to register for the 3rd Bi-Annal Authors Hall of Fame Induction. Relish and enjoy them.

PS .. stay at the hotel … save $50 on room rate … our block disappears on August 20.
