An Evening of Historical Fiction with Paul Levitt & Terry Frei, joined by Rick Rinehart

Colfax Avenue: Rick Rinehart, editorial director of Taylor Trade Publishing, will host an evening of historical fiction featuring two local authors. Paul M. Levitt, a professor of English at the University of Colorado and the author of several novels, plays, and works of literary criticism will discuss and sign his epic, character driven novel Stalin’s Barber (Taylor Trade). At the center is Avraham Bahar, who leaves debt-ridden and depressed Albania to seek a better life in, ironically, Stalinist Russia. A professional barber, he curries favor with the Communist regime and is invited to become Stalin's personal barber at the Kremlin, as well as that of the many Stalin look-alikes that the paranoid dictator circulates to thwart possible assassination. Political intrigue results.

Award-winning journalist, author, and screenwriter Terry Frei will discuss and sign his new novel Olympic Affair: A Novel of Hitler’s Siren and America’s Hero (Taylor Trade). In a novel researched in much the same fashion as his widely praised works of nonfiction, including Horns, Hogs, and Nixon Coming and Third Down and a War to Go. Using deduction, imagination and narrative skill to augment documented fact (as well as debunk myths parroted for many years), Frei tells the story of their ill-fated affair... and beyond.
