Among the events scheduled this coming weekend during Clearmont Days will be a book-signing.

Author Bud Sanders will be at the Clearmont museum on Saturday signing copies of his book, “Leiters to Littles.”

Sanders, who grew up in the Clearmont area, said a couple of years ago, a member of Clearmont's historical society asked him to write a book on the Leiter community. He said as he started doing research on the community, he thought it made sense to talk about the man who gave the community its name – Levi Leiter.

Sanders said when he started on the book, he decided to start at the very beginning, with the geologic history of the area.

He said the “Littles” part of the book's title comes from one of the later-day families that he focused on, fourth-generation ranchers in the Clear Creek valley and descendants of homesteaders in the area.

Sanders said he wrote the book as a fund-raiser for the Clearmont museum. He said copies are available at Sheridan Stationery.
