Todd Mitchell, Laura Resau, and Heather Mateus Sappenfield at Old Town Library!

Old Firehouse Books is thrilled to welcome three fabulous Colorado authors to a panel at Old Town Library! Todd Mitchell (Namer of Spirits), Laura Resau (Tree of Dreams), and Heather Mateus Sappenfield (The River Between Hearts) will be talking about their newest books, on Thursday, May 12th at 6pm MT. This event will be taking place at Old Town Library, and *Masks Are Encouraged*Readers will have the chance to say hi to these amazing authors and have their books signed. Books can be purchased in advance of the event, or on the day of. 

  • Namer of Spirits: a steampunk eco-fantasy about the perils of deforestation and the power of friendship, explored through a fantastical adventure of giant mistcats, tempestuous forest spirits, a supernatural puppy, and a girl with a special gift for shaping what things become.
  • Tree of Dreams: When Coco fears her life in the family chocolate shop is crumbling, a dream leads her deep into the Amazon rain forest. There, she discovers how far and wide her heart can grow. An award-winning middle-grade novel by acclaimed author Laura Resau.
  • The River Between Hearts: On an ordinary Monday, Rill Kruse left for third grade with a dad, but when she came home, he’d been stolen. By a river. One year and thirteen days later—on the first morning of summer vacation—Rill still insists he’s trudging home. When Rill’s cat, Clifford, leads her to the family tree fort on the mountainside behind home, she discovers a stowaway, Perla. To help Perla, Rill embarks on an adventure that tests her understanding of the world, of loss, and of what it means to be a friend. In the end, what Rill discovers will nudge her—and all those she loves—toward healing.

Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
