Reading Quirks with Andrés de la Casa-Huertas
Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome fellow indie bookseller Andrés de la Casa-Huertas of The Wild Detectives in Dallas to Fort Collins! Virtually, anyway! We'll be chating with Andrés on Tuesday, December 1st at 6pm MT about the Wild Detectives' hilarious and relatable book of cartoons, Reading Quirks! The talk will be streaming live on our Facebook page.
Reading Quirks is a witty and light-hearted ode to the immense pleasure of reading and its resulting byproduct: neurosis. In 72 four-frame cartoons illustrated by Lauren Pacheco, The Wild Detectives explore all the weird things readers do, "from the existential dilemma of picking your next read to the frustrations of watching an overzealous dog-earer in action." If you've ever left a book on your bedside table 50 pages in, stayed up until 4am just to read one more chapter, or accosted fellow shoppers to tell them to pick your favorite book, then this hilarious collection of highly relatable content is for you.
For readers of all kinds, this is for you. We hope to "see" you there!
