This week, Curated explores the influences literature can have on music and that music can have on literature, with an interview with editor and vice president of Viking Penguin, stories from Americana roots rocker Shakey Graves and information on new programming from Jazz Aspen Snowmass.

Last night, Aspen Words veterans Stephanie Danler, Anna Noyes and Molly Prentiss spoke about their debut book releases. For those unable to make the Aspen Words event, Claire Woodcock spoke with the authors while they were in town to bring us this conversation.

Next month in schools up and down the Valley, professional poets from across the country will be teaching Roaring Fork Valley students how to write and perform poetry.
