Fort Morgan, CO. 2/20/14.  The Center for Arts and Community Enrichment (CACE) at Morgan hi-res.EastOfDenvercover.jpgCommunity College (MCC) brings to you award winning author, Gregory Hill. There will be a 50-minute brown bag presentation and book discussion at noon on Thursday, April 10 at the East Morgan County Library (500 Clayton, Brush).

Attendees will have an opportunity to meet the author for an insightful look and discussion about his book, “East of Denver," winner of the 2013 Colorado Book Award for Literary Fiction. The book is a poignant, darkly comic debut novel about a father and son finding their way together as their livelihood inexorably disappears.

Hill grew up on a farm in Joes, Colorado, and attended the University of Colorado in Boulder. He has had various writing experiences prior to winning the 2013 Colorado Book Award, and has most recently completed a prequel to “East of Denver,” called “The Lonesome Trials of Johnny Riles.” Hill and his wife are now transitioning from Denver back to the family farm in Joes.
