Loveland Loves to Read

Each year, community members come together through the reading and discussion of a common book. In addition to book discussions, a variety of related events are scheduled.

Loveland Loves to Read 2016

Loveland Loves to Read had another highly successful year with Kent Meyers and his award winning book The Work Of Wolves. The Rialto Theater was near capacity on October 10th, when Kent related his experiences as a writer, and how he combined many of his personal insights with stories told by his students and by the Lakota Indians he encountered in South Dakota. Comments about Kent and his book were overwhelmingly positive, and those who attended his writing workshop the next morning were rewarded with his expert advice and encouragement for creative writing.

See you all next year!
