Taos Summer Writers' Conference 2013 faculty member B.K. Loren will discuss her two award winning books: Animal, Mineral, Radical and Theft at Albuquerque's independent bookstore, Bookworks, on Sunday, July 7 at 3:00 PM.
BK is teaching a class entitled: Beginning Memoir - Songs of Innocence and Experience: Finding the Core of Your Memoir at this summer's conference (in only a matter of weeks!). Of the class she says, "Stories give the world its shape and meaning in a way that cannot be explained by science alone. Every person has a story (or many stories) to tell. In this course, we’ll work on exploring our life experiences and listening intently to our own stories."
BK Loren has worked as a naturalist, large predator monitor for CO State Parks, professional brainstormer, assistant chef, ranch hand, furniture maker, UPS driver, and college professor. She currently teaches writing at Chatham University’s low residency program, the Iowa Summer Writing Festival, and many other venues throughout the United States and Canada. She is a winner of the Mary Roberts-Rinehart National Fellowship and has also received The Dana Award for a novel-in-progress for Theft. Loren currently lives with her partner, two dogs, and two cats in Colorado.
