About the Fort Collins Book Festival
The Fort Collins Book Festival was conceived by librarians, writers, book lovers, and community members with the simple purpose: to combine the community’s passion for the literary arts and our unique cultural, social, and economic heritage in a celebration of literature, literacy, and social conversation. The festival is produced annually by Poudre River Public Library District in partnership with Colorado State University’s Morgan Library. Information about the event can be found online at or by calling the Library District at (970) 221-6740.

The 2019 event is offered free to the community through the support and generosity of the City of Fort Collins Fort Fund, the City of Fort Collins Office of Economic Health, Bohemian Foundation, Poudre River Friends of the Library, Rocky Mountain Student Media, KUNC and the Colorado Sound, CSU Native American Cultural Center, Downtown Fort Collins Creative District, Northern Colorado Writers, Downtown Development Authority, Front Range Community College, Poudre River Library Trust, First National Bank, Savory Spice Shop of Fort Collins, Woodward Inc., Biblioboard, and other local businesses and creative arts organizations.
