Hello Firehouse friends. I was lacking in creative juices last week so I allowed myself to fall back on Chloe's lovely review of Sure Signs of Crazy. The author actually commented on the review. Nice one, Chloe!
Today I am here to tell you about the up-coming, second annual Old Town Book
Fair. I was totally oblivious to this event last year. But working in a
bookstore helps me stay up to date on all of the bookish goings on of Fort
The Old Town Book Fair is hosted by Wolverine Farm, a publishing house
located right here in Fort Collins. The event is a day-long celebration of
books and literary culture here in FoCo. But this year, there is even more fun
to be had, all week long!
While the actually book fair will take place on June 29th from 10:00am to
6:00pm, there will be other fun activities taking place everyday starting on
These events are as follows:

All this fun culminates in the ultimate event on Saturday the 29th. The Book
Fair will take place in Old Town Square. There will be events taking place on
the main stage, including a puppet show, open mic story time, a story slam, and
Both Old Firehouse Books and Fort Collins Brewery will have local authors
spending time at their tents throughout the day. Stop by at the right time and
you could meet authors such as:
and a whole bunch more! Again, for information on what authors will be at

All of us at the Firehouse would love to see you come out and participate in
this community event.
Until next time, Firehouse friends. Keep reading.
