Come celebrate Indie Bookstore Day at our Colfax location on April 30th at 2pm with readings from Denver-based writers David R. Slayton, Cynthia Kuhn, and Lisa Brown Roberts! This is a free event that will include readings, audience Q&A, and a signing line!


David R. Slayton grew up outside of Guthrie, Oklahoma, where finding fantasy novels was pretty challenging and finding fantasy novels with diverse characters was downright impossible.

The Adam Binder series continues with Trailer Park Trickster (October 2021), and Deadbeat Druid (October 2022).
