B. K. Loren at Prairie Lights Book Store

 

B. K. Loren's novel Theft won the 2012 Reading the West Award for Adult Fiction from the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association. Like Theft, her new nonfiction book Animal, Mineral, Radical reflects sustainability, wildlife, food, family, and community issues in prose so lyrical and lively that it feels poetic.

For a peek into the mind of an independent thinker whose writing has been shaped by her work as a naturalist, a large predator monitor for Colorado State Parks, an asistant chef, a ranch hand, a furniture maker, a UPS driver, a college professor, and a professional brainstormer, tune in to The Studio this week!
