This is the eighth day of my “The Twelve Books of Christmas” blog series. Each day through December 12 I will showcase a book written by a Colorado author who lives in the Fort Collins area. Please spread the Support Local Businesses love by purchasing a book by a local author at a local bookstore. That way your purchase will put a smile on everyone’s face.
Two independent bookstores that I recommend in Fort Collins are: Old Firehouse Books in Old Town, and Reader’s Cove on Harmony Rd. You can also find books at JAX Outdoor Gear on North College, Clothes Pony in Old Town, and the Northern Colorado Writers Studio at 108 East Monroe Dr. (Across from Tres Margaritas). Ask if they have any autographed copies in stock.
If you like true heart-warming story collections, then you’ll love…
Letters From Katrina is a coffee table book that draws inspiration from the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. Mississippi children share their Katrina survival stories and are inspired by thousands of pen-pal letters from students around the United States. Peek over the shoulder of our children, read their heartwarming letters, and discover the magic that occurs when we ask life’s most magical question…Will you be my friend?”
Note: Another wonderful book about Hurricane Katrina to pair this book with is Two Bobbies. It was written by my writer friends, Mary Nethery and Kirby Larson, and is true story about a cat and dog orphaned in the hurricane who help each other survive.
