6 p.m., a BOOK BEAT with author Will Everett, whose new book is titled "We'll Live Tomorrow."
This event is free and open to the public.
The book gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at how expensive American aid projects are conducted in Afghanistan, a look into the Afghan culture and insights about why the United States is still there.
The Houston Chronicle said the book is a "tribute to human tenderness, resilience and ambiguity in the face of war."
Everett, with Walter Cronkite, wrote and produced the 2006 documentary "World War One Living History Project," honoring the last surviving veterans of WI.
He also worked as a reporter in the Middle East, South Asia and West Africa for NPR, the BBC, Newsweek and other media outlets. More info: www.willeverett.net
7 p.m., Fireside Chat with the publisher and editor of Out Front Colorado, which has covered Colorado's LGBT community for 40 years.
It's one of the longest-running gay news publications in the country.
Our guests will be Jerry Campbell, publisher of Out Front Colorado, and Berlin Syvestre, the editor. They will talk about the history of Out Front and what it is like to cover the issues of concern to LGBT readers.
Phil Price founded Out Front in 1976. In the first issue, Price described Out Front's mission:
"Our Front will cater to the needs and desires of gays in the area and will feature articles, thought-provoking editorial, the latest news and exciting photography," he wrote. Price passed away in 2002.
The Fireside Chats are a series of informal conversations with journalists on topics of interest to the profession.
