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!”
