Denver Art Museum exhibition tells the story of the 20th century through jewelry

By Elizabeth Miller

The story of Cartier jewelry is one that’s less about objects and opulence than it is one about wearers and workers — the jewelry makers, that is, and the people who went on to adorn themselves with the pieces made. As much as the Denver Art Museum’s Brilliant: Cartier in the 20th Century.

Jon Bassoff makes reality a fluid concept in his new horror novel, ‘Factory Town’

By Josh Gross

“Someone said once that if you read a mystery book, even if it’s poorly written, you’ll keep reading because you want to find out what happened,” he says. “But for me, I stopped reading those kind of books because I got more interested in narrators, in unreliable, crazy narrators.

Like millions of Americans who lived through the 1960s, my home was filled with Walter Cronkite’s nightly narration of the events of the day. It seemed the struggle for civil rights was at the center of every newscast only to be replaced at times by the bloody coverage of the Vietnam War and the growing anti-war movement here in the states.
