2019 Loveland Poet Laureate Celebration

Sunday May 19, 2019 4:00 to 6:00 at the Rialto Theater

Veronica has published five collections of poetry, and is well known as a teacher, supporter, and promoter of the arts in Loveland. She serves as a mentor for many local writers. 

The event organizers are accepting donations to fund the event through the Friends' donation page on our website. Select "Loveland Poet Laureate" under Fund/Program.

Loveland Loves to Read Announces 2019 Authors

This year’s event presents a thematic approach to “Water in the West: A Conversation,” featuring two authors, with two books, and a supplementary reading list.

Authors Paolo Bacigalupi (The Water Knife) and Patty Limerick (A Ditch in Time: The City, the West and Water) will have a conversation moderated by Brian Werner (Northern Colorado Water Conservation District) on the evening of Tuesday, September 24, at Thompson Valley High School. Tickets will be available in mid-May.

The Water Knife is fiction, A Ditch in Time is non-fiction. Read one, or read both! They offer distinct views of Water in the West, which will enhance our understanding of the issues and inspire stimulating conversation.

For more information, see the Loveland Loves to Read page.
