Event description

Description

This is Denver’s story of 150 years of printers’ devils who served as the jack of all trades in print shops, the Bohemian lifestyle of the reporters who gathered the news, the ghosts of America’s printed newspapers, and a few poker-playing spirits inside the Denver Press Club.

There was a time when news was folded into sheets of paper and thrown onto millions of doorsteps throughout the country. It was a time when journalists were heralded as community leaders and with the same respect as doctors and lawyers. It was a time when the titans of industry and the lowly newspaper boy learned about international events from the same printed columns of the newspaper. Among the prominent social meeting places in most cities, the press club was revered where people enjoyed dignified social-and-political discourse, face-to-face camaraderie, while maintaining the highest respect for the First Amendment.

Club member, Dick Nosbisch, interviews Club historian, Alan Kania, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Alan’s new history of the Club, “THE DENVER PRESS CLUB: 150 Years of Printer’s Devils, Bohemians, and Ghosts.”

Cocktail' social hour is from 5 to 6 p.m.
