Local Authors: What We’re Reading Now

Laura Pritchett, novelist, essayist: “Steven Church’s brand new book One With the Tiger: Sublime and Violent Encounters Between Humans and Animals. I heard him describe it recently on a visit to Colorado as a ‘book about people who try to jump into lions’ cages at zoos, and stuff,’ which was recommendation enough. But I know it will also be a funny and serious examination about our relationship to the wild and sublime.”

Laura Pritchett’s new novel, The Blue Hour, will be released in February.

Laura Resau, young adult novelist: “One of my favorite reads of this year is The Book Scavenger, by debut Colorado author Jennifer Chambliss Bertman. This is a perfect family read-aloud or gift for kids ages eight to twelve. New friends Emily and James face high-stakes danger as they race to find clues to win the online game ‘Book Scavenger,’ created by eccentric mastermind Garrison Griswold. I absolutely loved all the cool literary illusions and the ciphers, codes and puzzles woven into the adventure. A treat for your heart and mind!”

Laura Resau is the author of The Lightning Queen and other books for young readers.
