Book Signing takes place at Fruita's, Open Page Book Store.

There is a new book for sale, one which will be of much interest to the Fruita Community. The title is simple,  FRUITATaking many hours and days of work, Steve and Denise Hight of Fruita, sought out photos that depicted the rich heritage of the area. They were able to glean some 250 photos for the book, using the history room which has been maintained by Yvonne Peterson with whatever help she could get. Other photos were loaned by individual families whose history goes back to the early days of this community. The Hights spent hours and hours verifying material, locating names and places, and making sure all information was pertinent and correct.
Arcadia Publishing Company has published numerous such books about small towns throughout the states. Usually the books are mainly composed of photos with captions that explain the history of the contents. This special book will bring hours of conversation to your household as well as make great gifts for those you know have ties to this history.
You may buy a copy at Open Pages and at Aspen Street Coffee.  There will be other locations at which you may find the book.
This book can be bought in Fruita at Aspen Street Computers, The Fruita Co-op, All Around Feed & Farmacy, Judy's Family Restaurant, The Hot Tomato Café, Dinosaur Journey, and Walgreen's. 

In Grand Junction the book is available  at 
Grand Valley Books, the Museum Of Western Colorado, Walgreen's, Barnes & Noble, and Hastings.
Steve and Denise Hight held the first book signing for their newly published book, FRUITA.

Customers who bought the book noted photos of their relatives taken back circa 1900.
Books were available for purchase at the book store located on Aspen Avenue.

City Market Bakery Staff decorated a cake in honor of the occasion. The cover of the book was the design placed on top of the cake.
