Leaders as Readers: Elbra Wedgworth

Tattered Cover welcomes Elbra Wedgworth on October 12th at 6:00pm MT as a part of our Leaders as Readers series.

Tattered Cover introduces a literary event series for readers by readers. Readers are leaders in the community and literature has touched the lives of many in a variety of ways. We want to celebrate those stories that have influenced us, taught us, helped us grow, challenged us and changed us. Inviting local, influential members of our community, we want to talk to them about books and stories. What was the book that made them fall in love with reading? Where’s your favorite place to read? What book has changed your life? What books do you recommend everyone read at least once? All of these questions and more are answered as we go beyond the surface, dive into the magic of books, and authentically engage with the community through the best way we know how: stories.

Elbra Wedgeworth began her career in public service as a City Council Senior Analyst. From 1994 through 1996, she was the Clerk and Recorder for the City and County of Denver.
