Mark your calendars now so you don’t miss out on the fun. Fort Collins Book Fest returns in 2023 with a new format but still keeps its focus on celebrating local authors, writers, books, and stories.

The month-long celebration takes place throughout February (it’s National Library Lover’s Month and I Love to Read Month!) and will feature author visits, writing workshops, readings, panel discussions, and more. There will be kid-friendly activities and sessions specially designed for teens. The event is free and open to all ages.

Visit the festival website for updates and announcements: And, plan to make time in February to meet your favorite authors, get new book recommendations, and interact with fellow book lovers.

Fort Collins Book Fest is presented by Poudre Libraries in partnership with CSU Libraries, CSU Department of English, Old Firehouse Books, Wolverine Farm Publick House, and others.
