Local Author Day

It's the 9th Annual Local Author Day at Jax!broomfield.jpg

Join us for a great time at the new Jax Outdoor Gear, Ranch & Home, Broomfield, CO on Saturday December 9th, 2017, 11:00 am to 3:00 p.m. as Jax once again hosts a myriad of local authors to discuss, autograph, and sell their books!

Over 125 titles authored by 35 participating Colorado authors will be on display and available for you to peruse and purchase. Ten percent of the retail price of all books sold at the event will be donated to the Broomfield Library Friends Foundation to support the Broomfield Public Library.

Coloring activities for kids (and adults)!
