"Reading is a political act."
That’s the tag line for Colorado Resistance Reads, the brainchild of RMFW’s own Kate Jonuska.
Colorado Resistance Reads curates books by Colorado authors that engage with themes relevant to today’s tumultuous political climate, including climate change, the free press, LGBTQ+ rights, the me-too movement, the refugee crisis, authoritarianism and more. Rather than presenting any one point of view or political persuasion, states the Colorado Resistance Reads website, these books encourage thought and conversation about current events through the medium of story.
The Colorado #ResistanceReads list is also an active fundraiser.
Every participating author is donating 50 percent of the profits from the sale of their book from Black Friday (11/23) through Colorado Gives Day (12/4) to a charity of the author’s choice.
Kate Jonuska is a Colorado native with a B.A. in creative writing from the University of Denver who went into journalism after college to pay the rent. She has since wracked up a decade of experience writing features for top-notch regional publications, including the Denver Post, the (Boulder) Daily Camera, The (Colorado Springs) Gazette and Boulder Magazine, specializing in food, fitness, travel, and arts and entertainment.
