Author to sign books at museum Monday

The Museum of Northwest Colorado invites the public to a book signing from 1 to 3 p.m. Monday at the museum.

"D.C. Oakes, Family, Friends & Foe" by LaVonne J. Perkins is a "comprehensive, well researched book about the life of D.C. Oakes," according to a museum news release.

The book began when the author was rummaging around a flea market and found a small book, "Compositions Emma Oakes." In trying to learn who Emma was, she became intrigued with Emma's father, D.C., who was, among other things, involved with forming the Colorado territory.

For more information, call 824-6360.
