An Evening with Jim DeFelice

Old Firehouse Books is excited to be partnering with the Friends of Morgan Library to host author Jim DeFelice. Join us on Monday, September 17th at 7:00pm at the Fort Collins Hilton to celebrate his most recent book West Like Lightning: The Brief, Legendary Ride of the Pony Express.

In the spring of 1860, on the eve of a civil war that threatened to tear the country apart, two Americans conceived of an audacious plan for linking the nation's two coasts, thereby joining its present with its future. West Like Lightning traces the development of the Pony Express and follows it from its start in St. Joseph, Missouri 1,500 miles west to Sacramento.

We hope you’ll join us for this free event!
