Event Details

Are you tired of reading the same books and authors?

Do you want to play the field but are too shy to try?

Then come “date” over 50 books in one night at “Speed Date with a Book,” on Thursday, April 6! 

To set the scene, imagine yourself sitting at a table with a few other curious “daters.” A local bibliophile comes to your table. A bell rings and the bibliophile has 5 minutes to share 5 of their favorite books with you! Ding! The bell signals the end of the first 5 minutes. You catch your breath, but then a new bibliophile shows up at your table to try and seduce you with 5 more books in 5 more minutes! The cycle will repeat 5 times at each location. That’s right, you will get to hear about 25 books at Townie Books, while sipping beverages and munching snacks. Then we’ll mosey towards the Library, where 5 different bibliophiles will each sell you on 5 of their favorite titles! 

After all this, we promise you’ll find someone new to take home and enjoy between the sheets!

“Speed Date with A Book” is a joint-event with Townie Books and the Crested Butte Library, it will start at 6:00 p.m. at Townie Books and end around 7:30 p.m. at the Library.
