One Kairos, One Moment, 52 Weeks By William Pilch

One Kairos, One Moment, 52 Weeks         Pilch Project Pic
The life of an artist is not an easy one regardless of time, energy and artwork.  Fort Collins is home to many artists of many capacities, and one of them is William Pilch.  Pilch began a project last year that involved attending every religious an/or spiritual facility throughout Fort Collins for one year, to better comprehend messages and interpretations of God and Jesus in our lives.  As it turns out, through his visits, messages became a focal point of an art piece he then created for each church, mosque, temple and many other places of gathering, and then interpreted them into a book he is also currently working on.  William will be conducting a series of lectures about his findings and understandings of the various aha moments of universal experiences that have come together in a language of receptivity.

A video for his project named One Karios (greek for a propitious moment), One Moment, 52 Weeks that is available on and on his website,
William’s series of lectures will begin April 13th at AANC/Artist Association of Northern Colorado , 148 West Oak Street at 9:30am.

Old Firehouse Books is proud to be one of 2,300 bookstores and libraries across America supporting World Book Night 2014.
World Book Night U.S. is an ambitious campaign to give thousands of free, specially-printed paperbacks to light or non-readers. Volunteer book givers help promote reading by going into our communities and handing out free copies to those without means or access to a printed book.
With the organizational support of local bookstores and libraries, they’ll be sharing them in locations such as hospitals, mass transit, nursing homes, food pantries, underfunded schools and more. This is not a random giveaway, but a person-to-person, carefully planned outreach.
World Book Night takes place on April 23, 2014 – Shakespeare’s birthday – and is in its third year in the U.S., after the UK launch in 2011. WBN US’s reach includes all 50 states, Puerto Rico, USVI, and overseas military bases.
World Book Night is making a short, free original e-book available to everyone at their website on April 22.  It contains ten short essays by booksellers, librarians and authors who were also givers.
The WBN picks are by a wide array of award-winning and bestselling adult and YA authors, as well as classics, books in Spanish, and books in Large Print. The assortment of WBN titles is based on diversity in subject matter, age level, gender, ethnicity and geography. The books were chosen in a vote by librarians, booksellers, and last year’s givers.

Old Firehouse Books be hosting a reception on Saturday, April 19th at 4pm.

On April 23 – Shakespeare’s birthday –  25,000 volunteers from Kodiak to Key West will give away half a million free books in more than 6,000 towns and cities across America.
Old Firehouse Books serves as a community base for local givers, receiving the books that they will be giving out and providing useful resources.
