Denver Post Pen & Podium Honorees

At the opening of its Pen & Podium Series, The Denver Post Community Foundation presented special guests from Colorado Humanities with a $5,000 grant to support the Motheread/Fatheread Colorado program. Colorado Humanities is one of five organizations focused on literacy to be recognized by the Series this year.
