EDWARDS – Minturn’s economic development director, Nicole Magistro, will be embarking on some economic development of her own.She’s purchasing Kathy Westover’s share of the 10-year-old Bookworm bookstore in Edwards. Magistro, 25, has been with Minturn since 2003 and has helped build Minturn’s farmer’s markets and other community events as well as working on Town Hall’s communication with citizens.When she leaps to the Bookworm in May, she’ll be in familiar haunts – she worked there before taking the job in Minturn.”This is a dream I’ve had since childhood,” she said. “As a kid I spent all my spare time in bookstores.”Magistro, who has a master’s degree in journalism, said she’ll work with partner Neta Jansen to do more book signings, book clubs and other community events. The town of Minturn has begun advertising to fill her position.Staff Writer Cliff Thompson can be reached at 949-0555, ext. 450, or, Colorado
