Loveland Loves to Read 2024

The Loveland Loves to Read book for 2024 was Good Night, Irene, by Luis Alberto Urrea.

Urrea is a prolific and acclaimed writer who uses his life experiences to explore themes of love, loss, and triumph.

A 2005 Pulitzer Prize finalist for nonfiction and a Guggenheim fellow, he is the author of 19 books, winning numerous awards for his poetry, fiction, and essays.

Urrea's newest book, Good Night, Irene, takes as inspiration his mother's own Red Cross Club Mobile service during World War II. With its affecting and uplifting portrait of friendship and valor in harrowing circumstances, the novel powerfully demonstrates Urrea's gifts as a storyteller.

Luis Alberto Urrea spoke to an enthusiastic crowd at Thompson Valley High School on Thursday, April 11.
