Events & Book Services

UPDATED August 19, 2023: Due to space limitations and some exciting improvements to the bookstore, we are NOT scheduling any AUTHOR EVENTS at our location. We’ll update this policy in a few months. Thanks for your patience!

We would LOVE to bring our BOOKSTORE POP-UP out into the Denver Metro area for conferences, corporate events, or organization fairs and festivals. Contact us with your details.

We create CURATED LIBRARIES for University Department Libraries, Law Office Libraries, Corporate DEI Resource Libraries, and Non-Profit Grant Projects. Reach out with the specifics and we’ll make it easy for you!

We can order your selection or provide suggestions for BOOK CLUBS. We are flexible to arrange for local pick up, ship to each book club member, or deliver the books to one location. We customize solutions to fit your needs. Contact us with your special requests.
