"All of us can think of a book... that we hope none of our children have taken off the shelf. But if I have the right to remove that book from the shelf -that work I abhor- then you also have exactly the same right and so does everyone else. And then we have no books left on the shelf for any of us."

—Katherine Paterson

How do the facts of history give rise to fiction? This question will be explored at a slide show and reading from "Mariano's Crossing," and award-winning historical novel by David M. Jessup. Historical photos of some of the book's characters, along with pictures of locations from the novel's setting, will be included. Jessup's novel was recently nominated as one of three finalists for the 2013 Colorado Book Award, in addition to winning first place in the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Contest.
