The Tattered Cover Book Store will host event in partnership with Hudson Booksellers at 1 p.m. in Terminal A

Passengers at Denver International Airport will be treated to a very special event on June 20. Hudson Booksellers, which operates The Tattered Cover Book Stores at Denver International Airport, has announced that Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado will speak and sign his memoir, The Opposite of Woe: My Life in Beer and Politics, at the Terminal A location at 1 p.m.

John Hickenlooper was inaugurated as the governor of Colorado in 2011. The first professional geologist to become a governor in the history of the nation, and the first brewer since Sam Adams in 1792, Hickenlooper previously served as mayor of Denver, an administration for which Time magazine named him one of the five top big-city mayors in America. In just over a decade, John Hickenlooper has gone from a craft-brew entrepreneur to mayor of Denver to governor of Colorado, hailed by many political analysts,The New York Times, and Fox News alike as a solid contender to be the next vice president. It is an unlikely tale of success, quintessentially American yet utterly exceptional. In The Opposite of Woe, Hickenlooper tells his own story of determination and daring, from business to politics, in his singularly sharp and often hilarious voice.
