Loveland Loves to Read, with William Kent Krueger
Loveland Loves to Read welcomed William Kent Krueger with a sell-out crowd at the Rialto on September 28. His award-winning book Ordinary Grace was the main focus of his presentation as he related how the main characters of the book reflected his own family and how the book just seemed to write itself.
Comments from the audience:
"Best author so far--my favorite book!",
"Great choice--Keep up the good work",
and "How do you top Kent Krueger? It will surely be hard to combine an excellent book with a superb presenter. Good Luck!!".
A full-house crowd at the Rialto theatre enjoyed the presentation by William Kent Krueger, sharing his spiritual, personal, and creative journey through the composition of Ordinary Grace>. Kent, as he prefers to be called, told about the similarities of his youth and upbringing with the characters in Ordinary Grace. He plans to write a sequel, but has postponed that so he can do a rewrite of what he had started.
Jody Love and William Kent Krueger chatted onstage at the Rialto Theatre. Kent told us later his heart was warmed by the kind, inquisitive, and insightful questions from the audience. Many audience members also enjoy Krueger’s Cork O’Conner series of mysteries, set in Minnesota.
