Thanks for joining our citywide conversation about race, social justice, and Claudia Rankine's Citizen: An American Lyric!
A project of Lighthouse Writers Workshop, NEA Big Read, and the City & County of Denver, Denver Talks hosted six weeks of arts events, book talks, and community discussions, culminating in a free on-stage conversation with Rankine and Mayor Michael B. Hancock at Boettcher Concert Hall. More than 6,000 people attended a Denver Talks event this fall, with roughly 1,800 in the audience for author Claudia Rankine's on-stage talk with Mayor Michael B. Hancock. We handed out more than 1,600 free copies of Citizen, and the book was checked out 1,900 times through Denver Public Libraries.
