An Evening With Anne Lamott

Anne Lamott will appear at the Hilton Fort Collins Hilton to discuss her new book Hallelujah Anyway: Rediscovering Mercy.  You must purchase a copy of the book from Old Firehouse Books to receive a ticket to the event. 


We will have 30 Standing Room Only tickets available the night of the event. They will go on sale shortly before the book talk begins at 7pm. SRO tickets are still One book = One ticket. 


Thank you so much to everyone who has purchased tickets to our event. It means a great deal to us. Without your continued support we would not be able to host great events like this. Thank you for shopping locally! 

Please remember to bring your TICKET(S) AND RECEIPT to the event. You will need them to get in/collect your book(s).

The Day of the Event: 

Parking: Since this is a VERY LARGE event, parking can be a challenge. The Hilton has 400 spaces onsite (subject to availability). Another parking option is the Lake Street parking garage, located across Prospect from the Hilton. The Hilton can provide free parking permits for up to 50 spaces in the Lake street garage, and permits are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. We recommend arriving as early as you can to find a spot.

Some important information to remember: The book signing will take place from 6-6:45pm. The doors also open at 6pm, so you’re welcome to arrive early and get a good seat. Seating at this event is first come first served. The book talk begins at 7pm. If you have picked up your ticket(s) but not your book(s), make sure you bring your ticket(s) AND receipt to collect your book. If you have not picked up your ticket(s) or book(s) you will be able to do so at the Hilton before the event begins. DO NOT TRY TO PICK UP YOUR BOOKS AT THE STORE TOMORROW. THEY WILL NOT BE HERE. If you are picking your book up at the event, there’s a chance it will have already been signed by Anne Lamott. If it has not been signed, you are welcome to join the signing line (from 6-6:45pm). We will also have signed book plates available if you do not have a chance to get your book signed. After the book talk, there will be cookies and beverages provided if you’d like to hang out and mingle with your fellow book lovers!

Anne Lamott has to catch a late flight back to California so she will not be able to stay after the talk to sign books. 

Thanks again and please call the store if you have any questions. 970-484-7898
