The final Aspen Words writer-in-residence for 2019 speaks about her work Tuesday evening

Aja Gabel’s debut novel “The Ensemble” offers a glimpse into the high-stakes world of classical music.

During her October residency, Gabel is working on a new novel about a marriage between a physicist and an artist.   

She says both novels are about the high cost of ambition. 


"When that passion for your work overtakes your life, and I think that that’s always a problem in the arts or when you’re super-passionate about what you do," she said.

Gabel will read from and discuss both "The Ensemble" and her new work at Hooch Craft Cocktail Bar starting at 5:30 p.m. 


Contributor Christin Kay is passionate about the rich variety of arts, cultural experiences and stories in the Roaring Fork Valley. She has been a devotee of public radio her whole life. Christin is a veteran of Aspen Public Radio, serving as producer, reporter and interim news director.
