Save the date! Fort Collins Book Fest returns on October 22 - 24, 2021.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 21 so you don’t miss any of the amazing speakers, presenters, and authors featured at this year’s Fort Collins Book Fest: Writings & Riffs.

The Festival is once again produced by Poudre River Public Library District in partnership with Colorado State University’s Morgan Library. Additional event contributors include the City of Fort Collins Office of Economic Development and The Music District.

This year’s book festival celebrates the richness of books, poetry, and music as means of storytelling, self-expression, and conversation. Each encompasses an extraordinarily wide array of genres and styles, using similar methods to build narratives, imagery, and sound. In short, books and music are flip sides of the same artistic coin. One just needs to look at the recent Nobel Prize in Literature awarded to writer, singer-songwriter, and musician Bob Dylan.
