Upcoming Virtual Events!

Hello readers!

We’re jumping back into the events game with some virtual book talks! We’ve got several authors spanning all sorts of topics from history to science, from teen fiction to sci-fi! We hope you’ll pop on over to our Facebook page to catch any or all of these events!


Betsy Gaines Quammen on American Zion, in conversation with David Quammen
When and Where:
Thursday, July 2 at 7:00pm

Join historian Betsy Gaines Quammen and author David Quammen as they discuss American Zion in a virtual event on July 2nd! Join us at 7pm on Betsy’s Facebook page (check back for a link soon!) for a live conversation about the Bundy family, public lands, and the American West!

American Zion is the story of the Bundy family, famous for their armed conflicts in the West. With an antagonism that goes back to the very first Mormons who fled the Midwest for the Great Basin, they hold a sense of entitlement that confronts both law and democracy. Today their cowboy confrontations threaten public lands, wild species, and American heritage.


A Beautifully Foolish Event with Hank Green!
When and Where:
Tuesday, July 7, 2020 at 5:00pm (Mountain Time); sign up here for the link

Hey, Nerdfighters! Join us on Tuesday, July 7th, for a special virtual event with Hank and John Green! They’ll be celebrating Hank’s new book, A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor! The event is free, but you must register through Eventbrite to receive the link to the livestream. It’s all going down at 5pm MST on the release date of Endeavor, so sign up now!

A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor picks up a few months after the disappearance of the Carls–and of April. Andy has picked up April’s mantle of fame, speaking at conferences and online; Maya, ravaged by grief, begins to follow a string of mysteries that she is convinced will lead her to April; and Miranda is contemplating defying her friends’ advice and pursuing a new scientific operation…one that might have repercussions beyond anyone’s comprehension. A Beautifully Foolish Endeavor is the bold and brilliant follow-up to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing. It is a fast-paced adventure that is also a biting social commentary, asking hard, urgent questions about the way we live, our freedoms, our future, and how we handle the unknown.


Sarah Henning Will Save You!
When and Where:
Thursday, July 9th at 6pm on our Facebook page

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome Sarah Henning, author of Sea Witch, back to Fort Collins–sort of! We’ll be hosting a virtual event with Sarah on Thursday, July 9th, at 6pm MST to celebrate the release of her new book, The Princess Will Save You. She’ll be in conversation with local romance author Amelie Howard, and signed book plates will be available with purchase of the book. The event will be live on our Facebook page, and will be available for later watching if you cannot watch the night of!

Inspired by the classic story, The Princess Bride, Sarah Hennings new fantasy adventure book will charm and delight you! When Princess Amarande’s commoner true love is kidnapped to coerce her into a political marriage, she doesn’t give in—she goes to rescue him. Bursting with strength and romance, this book is sure to scratch the itch you’ve suffered since you first watched The Princess Bride!


RL Maizes and Other People’s Pets!
Where and When:
Thursday, July 16, 2020 at 6:00pm on our Facebook page

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome RL Maizes, author of We Love You, Anderson Cooper, back to the store–virtually! We’ll be hosting her live on our Facebook page on Thursday, July 16th, at 6pm MST to celebrate the release of her new book, Other People’s Pets!

La La Fine relates to animals better than she does to other people. Abandoned by a mother who never wanted a family, raised by a locksmith-turned-thief father, La La looks to pets when it feels like the rest of the world conspires against her. R.L. Maizes’s Other People’s Pets examines the gap between the families we’re born into and those we create, and the danger that holding on to a troubled past may rob us of the future.


Biology Everywhere with Melanie E. Peffer
Where and When:
Friday, July 24, 2020 at 6:30pm on our Facebook page

We had some technical difficulties last month, before we’d quite figured out how to do our virtual events, and we ended up recording an event with local author Melanie Peffer, but couldn’t get it to upload… Anyway, we’ve rescheduled!

Join us on Friday, July 24th, on our Facebook page for a virtual book talk and signing! We’ll be chatting with Melanie E. Peffer about BIOLOGY EVERYWHERE!

Intended to bridge the gap between traditional biology classes and the practical biology knowledge needed in the real world, each chapter explores a different biological concept and relates it to some real-world issue or experience in an effort to demonstrate why the science of life matters to your everyday experience. We hope you’ll join us online to support this amazing author and her fascinating book!


Lady Astronauts with Mary Robinette Kowal!
Where and When:
Tuesday, July 28, 2020 at 7:00pm on our Facebook page

Old Firehosue Books is delighted to host Hugo Award-winning author of the Lady Astronaut series: Mary Robinette Kowal! She’ll be joining us live on our Facebook page on Tuesday, July 28th, at 7pm MST to celebrate the thrid Lady Astronaut novel, The Relentless Moon!

Elma York is on her way to Mars, but the Moon colony is still being established. Her friend Nicole Wargin is thrilled to be one of those pioneer settlers, using her considerable flight and political skills to keep the program on track. But she is less happy that her husband, the Governor of Kansas, is considering a run for President… You won’t want to miss what happens in this next installment of the tales of the Lady Astronauts!
