The first Hall of Fame induction, held in September of 2019, was deemed a massive success by those that attended, with authors local and national, living and passed being inducted into the prestigious event. The 22 authors honored included the likes of international bestsellers like Stephen King and Clive Cussler, as well as award winners like sci-fi author Connie Willis and Christian fiction author Jerry Jenkins. Every author either lived in Colorado at some time or featured Colorado prominently in their works.
Judith Briles is the founder of the Colorado Authors’ Hall of Fame. Her goal in creating the Hall was to acknowledge the countless author treasurers that have graced Colorado. “The breadth of impact these authors have is priceless. Their rich stories; their recognition as an influencer and problem solver with their written words; their residency in Colorado as a community member; and the measurable impact their words have had globally set the stage for an evening that is not to be missed.”
The Hall strives to educate the people of Colorado and the country about the stories of the authors who shaped their works using their personal presence and the environment of our State with courage, leadership, intelligence, compassion, and creativity. It wants to include authors who’ve made a major impact on others with their words. To make sure their legacies never die.
