Dick Kreck, longtime Denver journalist, will discuss the latest contribution to his popular Denver history series, amusingly titled “Rich People Behaving Badly.” Just released in August, it’s a fascinating exploration of both well- and little-known historical personalities on the Denver scene. He will read from his book, discuss the secrets of researching for popular history and answer questions from the audience. The talk is at 7:00 pm, Tuesday, October 11, at the Denver Women’s Press Club, 1325 Logan St. Denver, 80203. Parking available in the lot north of the clubhouse.
Dick covered Denver for 40 years as a columnist, editor and writer. He was inducted into the Denver Press Club Hall of Fame in 2010. He has long been a friend to the Denver Women’s Press Club. Now in retirement, he has parlayed his passion for history into a unique bibliography of local lore. His other books include “Colorado’s Scenic Railroads” (1997); “Denver in Flames” (2000); “Murder at the Brown Palace” (2003), which was on the Denver Post best-seller list for 22 weeks; “Anton Woode: The Boy Murderer” (2006); “Smaldone: The Untold Story of an American Crime Family” (2009); and “Hell on Wheels: Wicked Towns Along the Union Pacific Railroad.
