’The Ringer’ chosen for Wheat Ridge Reads

Posted

A novel by Boulder author Jenny Shank was chosen for this year’s Wheat Ridge Reads community reads program. ‘The Ringer’ tells of a Latino man who is shot and killed during a no-knock raid in Denver. The story is told from the point of view of the victim’s family and community of the victim, but also from the point of view of the cop who fired the gun and his middle class suburban family.

In its sixth year, Wheat Ridge Reads promotes literacy through a common reading experience among community members and culminates with three author presentations in September. Teenagers and adults are encouraged to read the book and join the discussion at one of these events.

Program partners Wheat Ridge High School and Wheat Ridge Public Library will welcome Shank on Thursday, Sept. 21. The Wheat Ridge Cultural Commission will host a Books and Brews event Saturday, Sept. 23.

Copies of “The Ringer” are available at Jefferson County Public Libraries and BookBar, 4280 Tennyson St., Denver.
