Event Details

Join the Gunnison public library in celebration of two new books by Richard Guerrieri and Phyllis Charlene Spann Guerrieri. The Spaghetti Gang: Memories of a Crested Butte Coal Miner’s Son and Pure Joy: Art and Anecdotes From 85 Years as a Colorado Rancher, both bring our local heritage to life. This event will be one for the ages.

From Dr. Duane Vandenbusche’s (Professor of History, Western State Colorado University) introduction to THE SPAGHETTI GANG: “Guerrieri’s account of his boyhood is wildly entertaining. . . Readers are treated to vignettes about “strap-on ski’s,” “no bathing suits,” “a horse named SOB,” “the dreaded Catechism,” and many other hilarious stories. . . The Spaghetti Gang tells a unique and heart-warming story of an ethnic coal town in American history. Crested Butte was, and still is, a great mountain town with a rich history. The Spaghetti Gang brings it to life.”
