Fort Collins Reads was excited to partner with Poudre River Public Library District and Fort Collins Book Fest to sponsor our 2021 annual event with author Kali Fajardo-Anstine, whose book of short stories Sabrina & Corina was a National Book Award Finalist. Thank you to all who joined us on the afternoon of Saturday, October 23 at The Lincoln Center in Fort Collins, CO.

“The Fort Collins Reads event and lead up was incredible— the selection committee promoted reading Sabrina & Corina for several months, engaged the community in dynamic ways, and the festival itself was expertly run and secure. Plus, my hotel and accommodations were beautiful! I was heartened by the diversity of the audience and the community’s shared love of reading in Fort Collins.”


– Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author of the Fort Collins 2021 citywide read selection Sabrina & Corina 


A free livestream of the event will be hosted by Fort Collins Book Fest. Please visit their website here for more details!

Copies of the paperback book are available at our partner Old Firehouse Books!

Let The Great World Spin

“When Fort Collins reads, it truly reads!  Between students, book clubs, teachers and librarians it felt as the whole literary world had come together in a generous collision.

What a wonderful place to turn a page…”

The Tortilla Curtain

”Fort Collins Reads is one of the most vital community resources I can think of.  It touches so many, not only in the city, but in the surrounding community as well.  Good people come together to do very good things for literature and for all the local citizens, young and old.  Long may the program live!”
