Tattered Cover Booksigning

When: Tue., Jan. 28, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Since the Super Bowl looms, and with it inane talk of "battles" among "warriors" in the "trenches," Ishmael Beah picks an opportune time to visit the Tattered Cover Bookstore (1628 16th St., Denver, tatteredcover.com). You might recognize Beah's name as being attached to a 2007 memoir called A Long Way Gone, which The Guardian (U.K.) called "a ferocious and desolate account of how ordinary children were turned into professional killers." Now the former child soldier in Sierra Leone — and poli sci grad from Oberlin College — tours behind his first novel, Radiance of Tomorrow. Arrive by 6:30 for a free numbered ticket for a place in the booksigning line, and to see Beah's presentation at 7:30. — Kirk Woundy
