Book Talk and Signing with Nick Arvin

Old Firehouse Books is excited to host Denver-based author Nick Arvin this July! Be transported back in time by a cast of vivid characters and the masterful storytelling of Mad Boy: An Account of Henry Phipps in the War of 1812. Join us in the store on Thursday, July 19th at 6:00pm for this event.

Young Henry Phipps has set out to realize his dead mother’s last wish: to be buried at sea, surrounded by her family. Not an easy task. But Henry’s stubborn determination knows no bounds. As he  works to reach his goal, he meets looters, British defectors, renegade slaves, a pregnant maiden in distress, and scoundrels of all types.

We hope you’ll join us for this event!
