book-collage-webLITTLETON, Colo. (Dec. 19, 2013) - Arapahoe Community College professors Dr. Jeff Broome and Dr. Kathryn Winograd will host book signings for their recently-released books at the ACC Library and Learning Commons on Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 2:00 p.m. and again at 6:30 p.m.

Broome’s book, Cheyenne War: Indian Raids on the Roads to Denver, 1864-69, details numerous Indian raids on the three roads to Denver (Santa Fe, Smoky Hill and Platte River) during that era, as well as the hardships that pioneers encountered in the settling of the American West.

Broome, a fifth-generation Colorado native who has been a philosophy professor at ACC since 1985, has written two other books about the wars between pioneer settlers and native tribes, including Dog Soldier Justice: The Ordeal of Susanna Alderdice in the Kansas Indian War and Custer into the West with the Journal and Maps of Lieutenant Henry Jackson.

Winograd’s book of western landscapes and inscapes, Phantom Canyon: Essays of Reclamation, is a collection of hybrid and lyric essays connected by the phantoms – her own and others’ – that follow one woman’s quest for solace, spirituality and reconciliation resulting from childhood trauma.

Winograd, English faculty and the coordinator of the Writers Studio at ACC, is also the author of Air into Breath and Stepping Sideways into Poetry, as well as the co-author of You Can Learn Online and You Can Teach Online. Winograd’s poetry has appeared in multiple literary journals, including The New Yorker. A Colorado Book Award winner, Winograd has also published numerous articles, essays, children’s stories and poems.

Both book signings on Feb. 19 are free and open to the public, and refreshments will be provided.
