Cultural Engagement

It’s often said that one can discover the world
within the walls of a library. With the Culture
Pass, patrons can discover their world outside the

which allows unlimited screenings of the latest
films at our libraries—Patrons can get a healthy
dose of culture inside the library too.

Join us for a conversation with award-winning author and television journalist Paula Woodward as she shares insights from her book, We Have Your Daughter: The Unsolved Murder of JonBenét Ramsey.

Forget everything you think you know about the mystery surrounding JonBenét Ramsey’s murder…

This six-year-old child was tortured and murdered on Christmas or the day after in 1996 in Boulder, Colorado. More than two decades have passed, yet her case is still unsolved.

The title of Paula’s award-winning book uses the killer’s own words. The book itself lets you consider information from the Author’s investigation derived from thousands of Boulder police records. It lets you experience that morning through the thoughts of the police officers who were there, in their own words, by posting the portions of their reports in the book about that terrible morning she disappeared. — None of these police reports have ever been published before.

Books will be available for purchase and author signing at the event!

Event Sponsorships Available

Ticket sales end Monday, April 23rd at 5 pm.

Friends-Only Tables Available
