Colfax Avenue: Join Active Minds as we explore the sometimes violent reaction from parts of the Muslim world to what many deem as “free speech” in other parts of the world. From the death sentence issued against Salman Rushdie in 1989, to the deadly protests in response to a widely condemned anti-Muslim film, this conflict has clearly intensified. We will seek to understand this complicated issue in part by examining the values held by free speech supporters and followers of Islam. PDF of the Active Minds Lecture Series.

Colfax Avenue: Denver author Maureen Dudley will read from and sign her debut novel The Plateau: Voices of the Earth (Word Keepers). The Plateau is the first book in an environmental science fiction trilogy about humanity’s efforts to protect and preserve our natural environments. The books speak to how what we ultimately do, as either good or bad stewards of our planet, affects the next seven generations and Earth’s future timelines. Can’t make it to the signing?
