Fort Collins Book Fest is taking a pause in 2022 for a refresh. We'll be back with a new event in early 2023!

My Heart is a Chainsaw: A Love Letter to Slasher Films

Renowned author Stephen Graham Jones dives into his genre specialty – horror fiction. His newest book, My Heart is a Chainsaw, features a strong female heroine in a format NPR calls “a deconstructed slasher film.” New York Times bestselling author of nearly 30 books, Jones brings his expertise and best scares to this session as he talks horror novels, horror films, comic books, and whatever else is on his mind.

This session is live, in-person at the Lincoln Center Columbine Room with a livestream available on, the NABEtv, or the Poudre River Public Libraries’ Facebook Live feed on the day of the event.

Masks will be required for all indoor events in accordance with Larimer County health and safety requirements.
