Josh Chetwynd - The Book of Nice: A Nice Book About Nice Things for Nice People

Colfax Avenue: Denver author Josh Chetwynd is a former reporter for USA Today and U.S. News & World Report, and a contributor to Variety, The Times (London), and the BBC. His previous books include The Secret History of Balls (named a “Best Book of 2011” by NPR), and How the Hot Dog Found Its Bun. Chetwynd will discuss and sign his new book The Book of Nice: A Nice Book About Nice Things for Nice People ($8.95 Workman), a compulsive and chunky book for lovers of trivia, popular history, customs, and culture. This entertaining, quirky compendium looks at those signs, traditions, and expressions that we so often take for granted, yet turn out to be quite fascinating.
