February may be a short month, but is not short on Boulder events. Valentine’s day is not dominating this month, though any of these events would make a great date night. Here’s a look at just four events this February has in store for Boulder.
Boulder Bookstore: February 10th, 7:30pm-Laird Hunt and Eleni Sikelianos
Authors Laird Hunt and Eleni Sikelianos will be speaking about, and doing signings, for their new books. “The Evening Road” by Laird Hunt, is the story of two women on the run through Jim Crow-era Indiana. The two travel a violence and hate filled America in search of a new life and escape their pasts. “Make yourself Happy” by Eleni Sikelianos offers an answer for one of the greatest questions: How to live. This unique book has both text and images sprawled out across the pages in a fresh take on mimicking ideas. “Humanity, happiness, and the survival of the biosphere spin each section forward, species are wiped out, yet the poem endures.” Vouchers are $5, and good for $5 off the author’s book or any purchase made that day.
