Nick loves Estes Park, and Estes Park loves all of their local authors, so it seemed fitting to the AiA “Nicksters” that he would like to attend the Estes Valley Library’s 2nd Annual “Love Your Local Author Festival” in February.

So, on a bright, crisp February day, Nick and his job coach Audrey careened up the mountain road to reach the Estes Valley Library to set up their wares.

Nick and the team made some new friends during the event and he would like to tell you about them.  Roni Wing Lambrecht and her husband, John,  lost their only son, Dalton,  in 2013. While grieving her loss, she and her family created an organization to continue touching people’s lives as their son Dalton had done. In addition, she wrote two books advising parents to make a lasting and meaningful relationship with their children.

Nick and Audrey had a blast making new connections at the Estes Valley Library. Thank you to the staff and all the participants for making such a great day!
