Join Justice Greg Hobbs for a Free Presentation and Book Signing in June

CBA-CLE is hosting a special free presentation on June 18, 2012 by Greg Hobbs, Colorado author, historian, and Supreme Court Justice. Justice Hobbs has a special passion for the West, all things related to water, and life in general. He’ll be speaking on two of his books: Living the Four Corners: Colorado, Centennial State at the Headwaters and, his newest book, Into the Grand. The stories encompass his experiences throughout the years of his exploration of the West and beyond.

“I like writing, reading the writing of others, and traveling through the imaginative landscape of this great country with family, friends, maps, and guides we meet along the way. The heart of this little book embraces a series of travel adventures with my wife Bobbie, starting with our Peace Corps service in Colombia in the mid-sixties and extending through my travels with grandson K.J. to grand places of our country’s legacy and future. The poems and prose poems are way markers and cairns.”

This is the second in a series of the Water 2012 Book Club and the Book Club organizers are featuring a book each quarter of 2012. Refreshments will also be provided.

It’s a special treat to hear Justice Hobbs speak and get inspired by his enthusiasm for Colorado, family, and life.
