It started as a barbecue in 1972. Now in its 50th year (2020’s event was cancelled due to COVID), Motherlode is one of the oldest outdoor pro/am volleyball tournaments in the United States. Celebrate with us at Wagner Park on Sunday.

Aspen’s parks are filled with volleyball nets as players compete for cash, prizes, and a chance to get their name on the courts at Koch Lumber Park. Friendships are renewed as players explore Aspen’s restaurants, retail, and nightlife.

From Amy Meyerson, the bestselling author of “The Bookshop of Yesterdays” and “The Imperfects,” comes a charming novel, “The Love Scribe,” about a woman with a special gift: Her stories help people fall in love.

When Alice’s best friend, Gabby, is reeling from a breakup, Alice writes her a heartfelt story to cheer her up. While reading it in a café, Gabby, as if by magic, meets the man of her dreams. Thinking the story might have some special power to it, Gabby shares it with her sister and other friends, who all find instant love. Word of mouth spreads, and Alice stumbles upon a new calling — to be a love scribe. Writing a love story for the reclusive Madeline, however, forces Alice to confront her own guarded heart. Because maybe — just maybe — there’s a love story waiting to be written for her, too.

Emotional, deeply imaginative, and brimming with valuable life lessons, “The Love Scribe” explores love, fate, and the power of stories when we choose to believe in them.
