Colorado is the FIRST State to Celebrate and Launch an Authors’ Hall of Fame

DENVER COLO. August 27, 2019. A group of dedicated authors and publishing providers in Denver, Colorado, the Mile-High City today announced the launch of the Colorado Authors' Hall of Fame, the first in the nation to celebrate and honor the breadth of work of authors connected in some way with the state of Colorado. The Authors Hall of Fame will host its first Induction on Saturday, September 14, 2019.

Eleven of the sixteen living Inductees will be present to accept their award; representatives of those who couldn't make it will be here; and family members of the five who have passed—all will share stories of their journeys.

Why an Authors Hall of Fame … and Why in Colorado?

"Words matter. The words authors write together can alter lives; launch a career; solve a problem … even save a life. Words are a fountain of joy, entertainment, and revelation. Yes, words matter," per the Founder of the Hall, Dr. Judith Briles

 "Authoring requires preparation, unbelievable stamina and courage. Facing that blank page is like starting an ascent. When you reach the top by completing your book, you can suddenly see farther than ever before. Having a book in hand—seeing your name in print is something every author delights to. And knowing that their ideas, concepts, and stories have the possibility of becoming an outreached hand for countless readers in providing entertainment, enlightenment and solutions is immeasurable."

Dr. Briles and her founding board members—several of whom are accomplished authors themselves—are choosing to honor their peers by participating in the all-volunteer-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Members of the public nominate extraordinary candidates whose works were vetted for induction into the Hall.

The Hall strives to educate the people of Colorado and the country about the stories of the authors who shaped their works using their personal presence and the environment of our State with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. It wants to include authors who've made a major impact on others with their words. To make sure their legacies never die.
