COLORADO SPRINGS – A Colorado Springs author is releasing a new book, called “100 Things to do in Colorado Springs.”

Writer Kirsten Akens worked as an editor for the Colorado Springs “Independent” and other publications. A few years ago she decided to focus on what our area has to offer.

“Locals, in particular, are excited because I’ve added a little bit of history here and there, so it’s not just a book for tourists, it’s also a book for locals,” Akens said.

The book also offers tips for interesting outings and adventures.

She has book signings scheduled around town all this month.
