We help non-profit 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, pay travel expenses, may contribute to honorarium (paid by Colorado Humanities) and work with us to promote the event. Colorado Humanities contracts with the speakers and pays honoraria, which hosts may also contribute to.
Our speakers include 2023 Colorado Book Awards finalists and winners and 2023 Colorado Poet Laureate finalists. They can read from their work, lecture, lead workshops, or join book club discussions about their work. If you are interested in booking one of our Speakers Bureau presenters, please complete the application at least 8 weeks prior to your desired event date.
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 Valerie Eddy, 303.894.7951 x15, firstname.lastname@example.org.
