Fairplay poet produces Little Dancing Fawn

Brief by Central Staff

Local book – December 1999 – Colorado Central Magazine

Fairplay poet Laurie Wagner Buyer was in deepest Montana 25 years ago, spending her first Christmas away from her family. She had no money for gifts, and sent them a story: Little Dancing Fawn.

In 1997, her father lay dying at the Prospect Home Care and Hospice in Woodland Park. She asked if there was anything he wanted her to do. “Publish Little Dancing Fawn,” he said.

So she has, with calligraphy and illustration by Guynn Waggoner Cavallini, and the proceeds will go to the Hospice. If you can’t find it in a bookstore, try Snowy Creek Publishing, P.O. Box 159, Fairplay CO 80424, or 719-836-2090.
