Join us on Saturday, December 7th at 7:00 for a book discussion by Rich Israel, author of Groovin': Horses, Hopes & Slippery Slopes. The presentation will be followed by an author reception.
In this lighthearted memoir of adventure and self-discovery, Rich Israel takes us on his journey during the tumultuous and transformative ’60s.

Eschewing societal norms, he hitchhikes across the country, tries his hand at mining, works at a circus, and rides a horse hundreds of miles through the Rocky Mountain wilderness—all the while, the draft and the Vietnam War are nipping at his heels.

Written in vivid detail, this coming-of-age story offers an opportunity to tag along on a nostalgic trek through a unique period in our nation’s history, as well as to experience the colorful hippie culture of that time. If you were there to live it, this book is certain to spark treasured memories. If not, it’s bound to bring to life the flavor and exhilaration associated with catching that exceptional wave. ?

Regardless of your background, these candid tales and unforgettable, quirky characters are guaranteed to warm your heart and bring a smile to your face.


Rich Israel Author RICH ISRAEL was born in December 1945. The baby boomer generation officially began January 1, 1946, so Rich says, “I was sent ahead as a scout to prepare the way.”

Raised in a middle-class Jewish household in Sacramento, he spent his college years at the University of California, Davis, campus, where he initially studied engineering, then transferred to biological sciences because of his love for nature. After graduating, he worked for the entomology department at the university for a year, then dropped out and embarked on many of the adventures described in his writings.

In the early 1970s, Rich coauthored what appears to be the first back-to-the-land book for his generation—a self-published guide titled Homesteaders Handbook. He went on to study natural medicine and worked in the natural foods industry for a dozen years. In 1991, he authored The Natural Pharmacy Product Guide, which remained on the Nutri-Books Top 10 List of Health Books for four months.

Rich is currently working on Trippin’, the second book in his Hippie Adventurer series. He lives with his wife, Doris, in Boulder, Colorado.

Join us on Saturday, January 11th for a reading and cheesemaking presentation by Kate Johnson, author of Tiny Goat, Big Cheese. The reading will be followed by an author reception.

Tiny Goat, Big Cheese is a farm-to-table, hobby-to-career memoir about how Kate Johnson went from being a stay-at-home suburban mom to running one of the busiest cheesemaking schools in the country. Her journey is told through a series of heartfelt and humorous stories, interwoven with cheese recipes and homesteading tips.

While Tiny Goat, Big Cheese is about goats and cheese, it’s about much more than that. It’s also about how tiny ideas can turn into big adventures if you let passion, purpose, and persistence take the helm. Kate’s enthusiastic and resilient story will entertain, educate and inspire you to follow your own dreams, live life fully, and maybe even make some cheese (and money) along the “whey!”


Kate Johnson is the founder and lead instructor at The Art of Cheese, a cheesemaking school based in Longmont, Colorado that specializes in hands-on classes for home cheesemakers. She also raises dairy goats on her family’s picturesque Boulder County farm and her classroom is located there.

Kate may be a country girl now, but she grew up as a city kid and later was a suburban stay-at-home mom when she first met a sweet herd of dairy goats that changed the course of her life. Not only is she raising goats and teaching cheesemaking now, but she is also an active leader with 4-H and writes cheesemaking and goatkeeping articles for a national homesteading journal. Prior to launching The Art of Cheese in 2014, Kate was a professional life coach, working with individual clients and teaching workshops on Living Your Life with Passion & Purpose. She loves that she is truly practicing what she used to preach!

Join us on Friday, January 24th for a presentation and reading by Sandra Dallas, award-winning author of Westerning Women. The reading will be followed by an author reception.

New York Times best-selling author Sandra Dallas was dubbed "a quintessential American voice" by Jane Smiley in Vogue, and her themes of loyalty and friendship have long resonated with readers. Sandra's upcoming novel WESTERING WOMEN (St. Martin's Press, on-sale: January 7, 2020) is an inspiring, feminist twist on the epic westerns she watched growing up in the 1950's. A celebration of sisterhood on the perilous Overland Trail, this new novel is not to be missed in the New Year.

It's February, 1852, and all around Chicago, Maggie sees the postings soliciting "eligible women" to travel to the gold mines of Goosetown. A young seamstress with a small daughter and several painful secrets, she has nothing to lose.

So she joins forty-three other women and two pious reverends on the dangerous 2,000-mile journey west. None of them are prepared for the hardships they face on the trek through the high plains, mountains, and deserts, or for the triumphs of finding strengths they did not know they possessed. And not all will make it.

As Maggie gets to know the other women, she soon discovers that she’s not the only one looking to leave dark secrets behind. And when her past catches up with her, it becomes clear a band of sisters will do whatever it takes to protect one of their own.


SANDRA DALLAS is the author of fifteen novels, including A Quilt for Christmas, Fallen Women, True Sisters, The Bride's House, Whiter Than Snow, Prayers for Sale, Tallgrass and New Mercies. She is a former Denver bureau chief for Business Week magazine and lives in Denver, Colorado.
