Bringing books, authors, readers and youngsters-learning-to-read together in a dozen programs in the Colorado's Roaring Fork Valley is accomplished each year by the Aspen Writers Foundation. The Great Read gathers cooks, bartenders, lawyers, nurses, retired folks and just about everyone else to share one book; they are offered talks, musical programs, seminars and drama to illustrate and articulate the themes of the book. A summer reading camp for kids, a televised book group, a writers' group, a literary festival, a writers workshop and many other programs reach into homes, schools and libraries to bring the excitement of books, reading, writing, discovering and learning to everyone. It is the only program in the valley to have this as its mission and it is changing the lives of children and adults every day.
