Longtime Glenwood Springs resident Pat McCain Cerise returns to the Roaring Fork Valley to sign her debut novel, “Willow Creek Winter.”

The book signing will be from 1-3 p.m. Saturday, March 5, at Red Mountain Books in the Glenwood Springs Mall.

The book uses the spectacular backdrop of the Crystal River Valley to tell this modern tale of Cassie Darnley’s grief over her husband’s betrayal and her discovery of strength to survive being kidnapped and held hostage in the dead of winter in the Colorado Rockies.

KBDI, Denver PBS Station Channel 12, will rebroadcast a television show by Christy Smith, “Christy’s Kids: Challenge Yourself,” at 9 a.m. Monday, Feb. 21.

Smith helps hearing and deaf children develop relationships and effectively break down communication barriers by encouraging them to facilitate communication any way they can. Future shows will be modeled after this concept, with the intention of introducing new characters and different locations.
