Dan Conaway is in a lifelong relationship with his city. They fight, but they get back together. His new book – “In a Colorful Place” – is a collection of his columns and the columns of Otis Sanford.

“There is still evidence that we are part of something larger and longer than this moment, and that we will carry on. For instance, right after I got home I had a wonderful pastrami sandwich from Hazel’s Lucky Dice Delicatessen, born in a bar during COVID.”
