It was with a great sense of foresight and stewardship that our government took the proactive measures to ensure that our public lands would be available to all and for all. Our natural wonders located in every corner of our country allow for citizens and visitors alike to explore and take on adventures of varying scale, to come and be at peace with nature and her infinite beauty. With 2018 being the 50th anniversary of both the National Scenic Trails Act and the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, Rizzoli New York is front and center among the celebrants.

On Wednesday, November 7, 2018, 7:00 pm MT, at Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver, Colorado, Rizzoli New York will host a panel dedicated to the celebration of our National Trails System and honor the 10th anniversary of our outstanding and award-winning outdoors publishing program, helmed by Rizzoli New York’s associate publisher, Jim Muschett. The publishing program, which publishes in partnership with official approvals from the trail organizations, has received numerous awards, including wins from the National Outdoor Book Awards, Banff Mountain Book Competition, Society of American Travel Writers, and Foreword Book of the Year Awards, in addition to a spot on the New York Times best-seller list. A portion of all book proceeds benefits each partner organization. The panelists comprise the best-of-the-best of Rizzoli New York’s authors and photographers, including Brian King of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy; Mark Larabee, managing editor of the Pacific Crest Trail Association; Pete McBride, photographer who is one of a handful to thru-hike the Grand Canyon; and Barney Scout Mann, thru-hiker of the Triple Crown trails and board member of the Continental Divide Trail Coalition. Gary Werner, executive director of the Partnership of the National Trails System, will moderate the panel. Following the panel discussion and slide presentation there will be a group book signing by the panelists.

Tattered Cover Book Store is one of the leading independent bookstores in the country, founded in 1971, with four locations. A Denver institution, Tattered Cover has a long history of hosting live author events, averaging more than 600 authors, illustrators, and public figures each year.

Rizzoli New York began its publishing operation in 1974 and has become a leader in the fashion, interior design, culinary, art, architecture, and photography fields. Rizzoli’s Universe Publishing imprint was added in 1990, marking Rizzoli’s entrée into the pop-culture worlds of humor, beauty, sports, performing arts, and gay and alternative lifestyles, as well as a highly successful calendar program. In 2011, Rizzoli established Ex Libris, an imprint dedicated to publishing up-market literary fiction and nonfiction with a transatlantic character. Since January 2018, Rizzoli has produced its museum and exhibitions publishing under the new imprint Rizzoli Electa, in collaboration with leading Italian book publisher and parent company Mondadori Electa. In addition to our publishing house, the company maintains the Rizzoli Bookstore—widely considered one of the foremost independent booksellers in America—which specializes in literature, photography, architecture, interior design, culinary arts, and the fine and applied arts. The bookstore also stocks a selection of Italian, French, and Spanish-language fiction and nonfiction, a unique find in New York City. Rizzoli Bookstore also maintains satellite branches in Eataly New York Flatiron, Eataly New York Downtown, Eataly Chicago, Eataly Boston, and Eataly Los Angeles, with a focus on culinary titles.
