It’s one thing to shop local. You’re supporting neighborhood businesses. When you buy local products, you’re supporting both a business and an artisan – two entities within your community. That’s why when you give a book as a gift this year, please choose to purchase one written by a Fort Collins author.
Here are some suggestions for kids and teens on your list. And if you don’t have children, why not donate a book to your local public or school library, or give one to your Toys for Tots drive. They are always in need of gifts for teens.
