Junie Joseph

Boulder City Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Junie Joseph shares what she is currently reading and her favorite top ten books that she has ever read. Junie says, “reading is one of my favorite pastimes: when I am bored, sad, and happy, I read. Books are like magical vehicles that can transport us backward into the lives of our ancestors and forward into the prospective future we hope for.”
