All Pikes Peak Reads presents Erik Larson

When: Wed., Oct. 6, 7 p.m. 2010

Notable firsts from the 1893 Chicago World's Fair include Juicy Fruit gum, phosphorescent lamps and the Ferris wheel. It was a time of hope and growth. In his No. 1 New York Times bestselling book The Devil in the White City, Erik Larson melded the romance of the fair and the architect who built it with the ghastly story of serial killer H.H. Holmes. A mesmerizing historical tale, for sure, it's one of this year's selections for All Pikes Peak Reads, and the Pikes Peak Library District presents a free reading and Q&A with the Time magazine contributing writer at 7 tonight at CC's Armstrong Theatre (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., ppld.org). — Kirsten Akens
