Author Schedules Research, Book Signing in Windsor

Author Tracy Beard is Visiting Windsor to Conduct Research for her Next Book

Tracy Beach, author of the book “The Tunnels Under Our Feet-Colorado’s Forgotten Hollow Sidewalks” and other non-fiction history books, will visit the Town of Windsor on Thursday, April 18, to conduct research on the 5th Street tunnel between the 1908 hospital and Windsor Memorial Chapel. While in Windsor, the author is hoping to meet with those who know stories about the tunnel and any other underground vaults or tunnels around Windsor, for her second Tunnels book.

The public is invited to hear Beach speak to the Rotary Club at the Community Recreation Center Spruce room, 250 N. 11th St., Thursday, April 18th at 12:30 p.m. There will also be additional time from 1 to 2 p.m. to purchase her books, as well as interview those with knowledge of Windsor’s historic tunnel system and to collect personal narratives and new locations to visit.

In the evening the public is invited to meet and mingle with Beach during Windsor Art & Heritage Center’s Crafty Cabaret from 6 to 8 p.m. Crafty Cabaret is a free public event sponsored by High Hops where residents are invited to participate in a community craft activity, listen to music, and enjoy complimentary beverages. Beach will also be available that evening to sign her books and collect stories about the tunnel and doors between what is presently the 5th Street Apartment Building and Little Wool Shop on Main Street. The Art & Heritage Center is located at 116 5th St.

During the day, the author will be privately touring and collecting research for her next book. Local Historic Preservation Commission board member Ruth Brunner was instrumental in bringing Beach to Windsor after hearing her speak at the state Saving Places Conference. Brunner says, “Stories make people want to save places and bringing in an renowned author, who is interested in researching Windsor's historic tunnel will promote some of the places that are an important part of Windsor’s history.” For details or to set up a time to discuss a personal experience with the tunnel and associated businesses, contact Brunner at
