Join 5280‘s food editor Amanda M. Faison on Wednesday, November 12, at 7 p.m. for an author talk and book signing at the Tattered Cover Book Store on Colfax Avenue. Ryan Warner, Colorado Public Radio’s host of Colorado Matters, will interview Faison and chefs Dana Rodriguez (Work & Class) and Kelly Whitaker (Basta, Cart-Driver). The topic is 5280: The Cookbook but there will be plenty of discussion about Denver and Boulder’s vibrant—and ever-changing— restaurant scene. Bonus: samples.

7–9 p.m., free, 2526 E. Colfax Ave., 303-322-7727
