I had the good fortune recently to hear past U.S. Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winner Rita Dove read a selection of her work. The Rialto, a restored theater in Loveland, Colorado, provided the perfect venue for Rita’s powerfully read works. Hearing her moving readings from her past and most recent poems was a treat!
Her newly released collection, Sonata Mulattica, was exquisitely traveled. Published by W.W. Norton, I definitely consider it a must read.
The audience was highly interactive and involved in the reading and Loveland is a city that loves poets and poetry, making it an ideal place for readings.
