The Colorado Center for the Book Speakers Bureau brings experienced, engaging local authors to cultural centers and schools throughout Colorado. We help organizations identify the kind of literary event that is right for their community, book one of our Speakers Bureau authors, and promote the event. Organizations then schedule the event directly with the author, contribute an honorarium and/or travel expense reimbursement to bring the author to their community, and work with others in their community to promote the event. Some organizations who have not had a Colorado Humanities program in their community in the past several years may be eligible for a small stipend from Colorado Humanities to book a speaker.
Our 2020 speakers include the 2020 Colorado Book Awards winners, 2019 Colorado Poet Laureate finalists, and the Colorado Poet Laureate. They are vetted, award-winning authors who can:
- Read from their work
- Deliver informative lectures on their area(s) of expertise
- Host conversations around their area(s) of expertise
- Lead writing workshops or craft seminars
- Be part of lively book club discussions regarding their work
Our mission at the Colorado Center for the Book is to encourage a love of reading and books among people of all ages through diverse cultural activities. For more information, contact Chris Goff, 303.894.7951 x19, fax 303.864.9361, firstname.lastname@example.org.
