One Book, One Valley read announced in Avon Tuesday

Minturn Mayor Pro Tem George Brodin, Avon Mayor Rich Carroll, Vail Mayor Andy Daly and Eagle Mayor Pro Tem Kraige Kinney hold the book “Doc,” by Mary Doria Russell, during the launch of One Book, One Valley on Tuesday at the Avon Public Library. One Book, One Valley is a collaborative effort by The Bookworm of Edwards, Colorado Mountain College, Eagle Valley Library District and the Vail Public Library.

The goal of these organizations is to promote a sense of community by sharing a common topic for conversation and to encourage the value and fun of reading together. The group chose the title in part because of its regional ties, according to Vail librarian Lori Barnes. “Doc Holliday lived in Leadville for a while and died in the Glenwood Springs Colorado Hotel. He used the Yampah Hot Springs to try to restore his health but died in bed of tuberculosis; his grave site is in Glenwood Springs,” she said.
