Gin Getz will be appearing at Denver’s Tattered Cover Bookstore on June 12, 2014 at 7 pm at the Historic Lodo location to give a presentation and slide show about her upcoming book, The Last of the Living Blue, scheduled for release June 30, 2014 by NorLights Press. The book is an intimate, intense personal account of the effects of our changing climate in the author’s own big back yard, Colorado’s majestic mountains and the Weminuche Wilderness. It reads close and comfortable, though the times it takes you through are often anything but. It’s real and raw, told in a soft yet powerful voice, taking the reader along through one year of drought, fires, floods and the healing of mountain and mind. This beautifully told story addresses a matter of utmost concern from a unique perspective and in a quiet yet captivating tone. The Last of the Living Blue is an unusual approach to addressing the effects of climate change upon our beautiful world, one tree at a time. Neither a preachy lecture, nor a “everything’s peachy” scenario, you’ll find yourself enchanted with Gin’s prose, poetry and storytelling as she open up her world to us and shares with the reader in stunning words what she sees.
