Hey, all you political junkies, have I got news for you.

Tuesday night, Bob Loevy and Thomas Cronin, both Colorado College professors, will be discussing their new book, Colorado Policy and Politics: Governing a Purple State.

Gail Klapper of the Colorado Forum had this to say in the press release:

Tom Cronin and Bob Loevy have captured the complexities of Colorado policy-making in this wonderful book. It clearly explains the challenges our state faces: conflicting constitutional measures; our inclination toward direct democracy through initiatives; and the personalities and organizations that sometimes join hands and sometimes oppose each other as measures move through the system. It's a fascinating read.

The event will begin at 6 tomorrow evening at will be held in the Cornerstone Arts Center at 825 N. Cascade Ave. It is free.
