  Book Launch and Discussion with Kim Cope Tait


Wednesday, March 4, 2015 5:30 PM

Join the Vail Public Library for a book launch with local writer, yogi and teacher, Kim Cope Tait, for her new title “Bend the Blue Sky.”

Meghann Faye Carroll, narrator of “Bend the Blue Sky,” is the granddaughter and spitting image of Esther "Violet" Carroll. Violet's story is one of tragedy and pathos, of the splintering of lives in the wake of her husband's disappearance during the Korean War. An F-86 Sabre Jet pilot, Charlie Carroll's status moves from MIA to KIA in the customary space of a year from 1952 to 1953. What follows spans the distance between that loss and Meg's own engenderment. It is the story Meg invents for her grandmother, intertwined with her own. It is the truth bound up in fiction. Meg's narration alternates between her own story and that of Violet, admittedly partly invented in the absence of facts, until finally the stories collide.

Kim Cope Tait recently located to Vail by way of Vermont, Hawaii, California, New Zealand, and Switzerland. Trained in the Amherst Writers & Artists method of leading writing workshops and holding an M.F.A. in Poetry from Vermont College of Fine Arts, Tait is an accomplished teacher of writing. Her own works have appeared in literary journals and magazines in the U.S. and abroad.

Last winter, Vail Mountain re-imagined the nightclub experience in the Colorado Rocky Mountains with Décimo when it debuted on Tuesday, March, 4, 2014 to a sold-out crowd. Located at 10,250 feet above sea level on Vail Mountain, Décimo featured three-time Grammy nominee, DJ, producer and artist Paul Oakenfold in an event that matched the legendary reputation of the mountain and resort.

January 30, 2015
February 13, 2015

Décimo will continue to blend exceptional service and renowned entertainment with the excitement of a world-class nightspot set amongst the iconic backdrop of Vail Mountain. Each unique event will begin at the base of Gondola One in Vail Village. From there, guests will be carried to mid-mountain in the gondola’s state-of-the-art cabins, complete with heated seats and Wi-Fi access. Just steps away from the top of the gondola, guests will enter a space that has undergone a carefully orchestrated transformation into the chic, dynamic nightspot that is Décimo, an exclusive nightclub experience complete with VIP tables and bottle service.
