Beyond Painted Desert

Karen Fricke will share readings from her poetry book Beyond Painted Desert. Poetry and the act of writing have been a powerful vehicle for self-growth in her life, and Karen’s book of poetry reflects this love of the written word and of animals and nature.

An elementary school teacher for 30 years, Karen now enjoys facilitating writing classes and day-long writing retreats through Circle Horse Writing®, her affiliate school of Women Writing for (a) Change®. Twelve-acres of land and a home shared with her four-legged friends provide the back-drop for many poems yet to be realized.

L. Luis Lopez is a retired professor from Colorado Mesa University where he taught English, Latin, Ancient Greek, and Mythology. He has published four books of poetry: Musings of a Barrio Sack Boy, A Painting of Sand, Each Month I Sing (which won the American Book Award in 2008), and Andromeda to Vulpecula, 88 Constellation Poems.
