The first ever Paper Trail took place this past weekend as local businesses and organizations in Downtown Flagstaff opened their doors to the community’s literary enthusiasts to celebrate the written and spoken word. Bridget Rowan (a Bookmans alumnus) and John Quinonez came up with Paper Trail in June while hanging out in the Bookmans Cafe, where all great ideas are born. They wanted to create an event that highlights the literary community of our beautiful mountain town in a way similar to First Friday Art Walks. And so Paper Trail was born. We couldn’t wait to get involved! With community partners like Flagstaff Public Library and Black Rose, Bookmans was in excellent company.
