I attended a short-story writing workshop in a yurt (which I blogged about over at The Writing Bug). And I met local author Lori Juszak, who has written a book about Ghosts of Fort Collins.
She and her family operate The Fort Collins Ghost Tour, and the book shares many spine-tingling historical and personal anecdotes about the restless spirits in Old Town and beyond. I bought a copy, and regardless of whether I believe all the stories, the book has forever changed how I look at some of my favorite old buildings.
I have to admit, I'm a little too creeped out to join one of the ghost tours, but Lori also offers Gourmet Tours, including Just Desserts, Flavors of Fort Collins, International Food, and more. I'll definitely give one of those a try sometime.
I hope you have the opportunity to discover a few great local books wherever you are this summer!
