What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Becci and I are starting a book versus movie book club. We are going to be meeting up to discuss the redeeming value in both and discussing positive and negative thoughts about each media platform. We will be reading and watching Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. If people can’t watch the movie that’s ok but we want them to try. We will also discuss the future books and meetups at the first meeting.
Untitled Final Fridays is the DAM’s monthly late-night program featuring unconventional experiences developed in collaboration with local creatives and community members. In February join Black Actors Guild to explore dynamic narratives from Denver’s Five Points neighborhood through music, poetry, and performance. I can get the first 6 people to arrive in for free, for the latecomers admission is $10 (for Colorado residents, unless you have a membership). Meet in the Hamilton building lobby (near the bottom of the staircase) - check the comments for updates on what turf we were able to stake out!

This month we are going more high fantasy with Assassin's Apprentice by Robin Hobb. Here is a summary from GoodReads: n a faraway land where members of the royal family are named for the virtues they embody, one young boy will become a walking enigma. Born on the wrong side of the sheets, Fitz, son of Chivalry Farseer, is a royal bastard, cast out into the world, friendless and lonely. Only his magical link with animals - the old art known as the Wit - gives him solace and companionship. But the Wit, if used too often, is a perilous magic, and one abhorred by the nobility. So when Fitz is finally adopted into the royal household, he must give up his old ways and embrace a new life of weaponry, scribing, courtly manners; and how to kill a man secretly, as he trains to become a royal assassin. A location will be chosen closer to the date.
