Denver’s Human Services Department, along with The Adoption Exchange and other organizations, are pleased to bring author Vanessa Diffenbaugh for a FREE book signing in Denver next week the evening of September 10. Vanessa Diffenbaugh is the author of the acclaimed novel The Language of Flowers, which has been optioned as a motion picture. From Amazon: The Victorian language of flowers was used to convey romantic expressions: honeysuckle for devotion, asters for patience, and red roses for love. But for Victoria Jones, it’s been more useful in communicating mistrust and solitude.
I had the opportunity to talk with medical economist, healthcare policy expert and former Denver resident J.D. Kleinke about his newly released novel Catching Babies. This book is sure to create some buzz as it confronts issues such as unnecessary c-sections, the uninsured, birth trauma, the flight to homebirth and the rampant rise in post partum depression. J.D. will be at the Tattered Cover on Colfax Avenue this Thursday, March 31st, 7:30 p.m. for a book reading and signing.
