One Book Watch Party ~ Colorado Experience: San Luis Valley
- Virtual Event -- Access Info Below
Nestled between the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the scenic San Luis Valley holds a rich history for South-Central Colorado. Travel to San Luis, founded in 1851. Step inside the Valley's beautifully preserved 19th Century churches. Explore the agricultural legacies from La Vega, an expansive communal pasture land, to The People's Ditch, a canal that holds the earliest water rights in the state. This valley is the setting for Cheap Land Colorado, and this documentary adds valuable context to a reading of Ted Conover's contemporary story about land use and individuals who now reside in the San Luis Valley.
