Does the Rocky Mountain Book Festival Still Exist?

Can anyone tell me if the RMBF is still around? I tried to find it online, but the last mention I found was 2002. If you have any information about this, please leave a comment to this post. Thanks!

I was wondering that myself when I came across your post. The answer, unfortunately, is "no."

According to the March 07 newsletter of Colorado Center for the Book:

Book Festival Must Have Funding
The CH board convened a Rocky Mountain Book Festival (RMBF) Viability Committee chaired by pre-merger CCFTB Board Member Judy Casey in April 2005. In January 2006 the committee recommended
to the Board that CH not produce
another Rocky Mountain Book Festival without a major partner with at least $40,000 in fundraising resources.

How are your fundraising skills? :)

Thanks for the information! I'm sure I could raise, like, 75 cents if I really tried.
