Hosted by Colorado Authors’ League and the Denver Public Library – Western History

The Colorado Authors’ League is celebrating its 85th year as the state’s premier organization for authors. The organization was rooted
in 1919 as a support group and educational vehicle for some of the state’s leading authors. It was formally organized in 1931, to “foster the art
and craft of authorship and particularly to promote the interest of Colorado writers in whatever manner and along such lines as may from
time to time appear advisable.” Today Colorado Authors’ League has approximately 260 members, and still exists to help writers and authors succeed.

The Denver Public Library’s Western History and Genealogy Department is dedicated to sharing its over
3,000 titles by Colorado authors. The special collection of Colorado-authored books dates back to the establishment of the library in 1899,
when it was decided to keep these volumes in a separate grouping.
