Denver Historian Phil Goodstein Tells It Like It Was

If you spent an inordinate amount of time indoors in the last year and a half, and you're getting back out into the world, you may have noticed some changes to Denver. There is construction of buildings and streets everywhere. A drive through the RINO area by Brighton Blvd demonstrates that nothing much stays the same in Denver.

Phil Goodstein, who has written loving tributes to Denver’s history for three plus decades, outdoes himself in his newest book that traces the rise and fall of Denver’s skyline and disappearing architectural gems. Now you have a chance to meet the author at a book talk sponsored by Denver Bookbinding Company. Use your GPS to get to the event, though; a lot has changed out there.

Nobody has probed Denver’s essence more than native Phil Goodstein. The author of more than 25 books on the Mile High City, he has sought to understand the metropolis while featuring its highlights and flaws. Among them is North Side Story, a volume focusing on North Denver.

Now Goodstein has crafted a love letter to the city, focusing on yesterday’s marvelous buildings, The Denver That Is No More. It focuses on the landmarks that have disappeared, observing the constantly changing face of the community. The book is a lively tour of a forgotten time and place of Denver of yore. Phil will be on hand to share stories from his book and sell and sign copies of it and other volumes. His speaking style is as distinctive as his writing. Copies of Phil’s books will be available for purchase at the event.
