Aspen Square Daily News
One of the most fascinating and topical series we enjoy here in the summer is the McCloskey Speaker Series offered by the Aspen Institute. The series begins tomorrow, July 10, at 6pm in the Greenwald Pavilion on the grounds of the Institute. Featured speaker this week is Walter Isaacson, who will discuss "The Innovators: How a Group of Inventers Created the Digital Revolution." Future conversations will include Representative John R. Lewis (July 18) and Condoleeza Rice, Robert Gates and Madeline Albright (August 8).
It's a gorgeous day here in Aspen and we want to take a moment to wish all of our friends and family a happy, healthy and fun 4th of July! The festivities kicked off early with the start of the Boogie's Buddy 5 race and the bouncy houses are still installed at the corner of Hunter and Cooper, just down the block. Have a great day!
Before the 4th of July dawns tomorrow, visitors to Aspen can take a culture break tonight at the Aspen Music Festival. The world-renowned Takacs Quartet, will present a concert of string quartet music in Harris Hall at 8pm.
