Colorado Authors Poster

The Colorado Authors poster promotes Colorado authors to Colorado readers. The Children's, Juvenile and Young Adult authors are intended to educate children about the richness and diversity of Colorado authors who write just for them. As we sought to highlight authors in the state who have contributed to Colorado's literary identity, we involved a broad array of experts in the literary field, such as writers and public librarians.
