Join Stephanie Vail, Jacki Carr and Women in Sustainability for some SHELF INDULGENCE in our very first collab book swap!

We know you are getting your 2023 on and cleaning the closets and shelves. Don’t you give away your books yet; let’s swap! A nod to your reading goals this year and a big nod to mother Earth in book sharing, let’s gather, share our fav reads and grab new books for our TBR (to-be-read) list!

Spread the love and support our nonprofit partner and help us reach $500! This event is free to attend with a suggested donation of $22 to be given to Women in Sustainability. WIS is on a mission to CARE for the people that CARE for the planet through Community, Advocacy, Resources and Education.

How it works, let’s get on the same page:

  • Each person will bring book(s) to swap 
  • We will showcase them on tables to swap and shop
  • Circle up, each person will have the opportunity to share one book out loud that is a must-read and why they love it
  • We then run loose to create our new-to-us libraries

Leftover Books? BookGive Denver will be on-site with their electric van to pack up any books to be donated to those in need.

Snacks and lite refreshments provided care of On the Move with Vail’s Steph Vail. Thanks Steph!

Enter-to-Win Giveaway at the end for book delights provided care of Jacki Carr, goal coach, speaker and aspiring author. Thanks Jacki!

We will have a Book Lovers Giveaway for those in attendance at the event care of author Brooke McAlary (2 signed copies of her book ‘CARE’), author Tricia Huffman (2 signed copies of her book ‘F the Shoulds, Do the Wants’) and for the romantic reader in you with candles care of Old Pine Candle Co.

See you there, spots will fill so grab a spot and save the date!
