Mountain Fold Books
Mountain Fold Books is a nonprofit LLC, founded in Feb, 2014 by Marina Eckler and Jonathan Fey for the purpose of opening a physical "brick and mortar" literary center in Colorado Springs. We are recent recipients of the $10,000 Ingenuity Grant from the Pikes Peak Community Foundation. The mission of Mountain Fold Books is to provide access to contemporary small press print and journal publications in poetry, fiction, and visual arts through an independent reading room, bookstore, and cafe. We seek to extend public access to those books which are not already widely available in the Pikes Peak region, and to voices which are underrepresented in commercial literature. Mountain Fold Books exists to serve the community as a physical space for the physical act of reading, and as a local center for book culture in Colorado Springs. We opened to the public in September, 2014. Mountain Fold Books is honored to be a component fund of the Pikes Peak Community Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization.
