Fort Collins reading features Laramie's Julianne Couch and Denver's Chris Ransick

Laramie’s Julianne Couch will join Denver Poet Laureate Chris Ransick for a reading on Tuesday, Nov. 18’s “Poetry & Prose event,” taking place at 7:30 p.m. at Bas Bleu Theatre Company, 401 Pine St. in Fort Collins, Colo.

Lest you think that Chris is thoroughly a Coloradan… He once told me that he was married on Casper Mountain. Also, his first book of poetry, “Never Summer,” was published by Pronghorn Press in Greybull.

Ransick won the Colorado Book Award in 2003 for “Never Summer.” His book “Lost Songs & Last Chances” won the Colorado Authors’ League Award for poetry in 2006. Julianne Couch is the author of “Jukeboxes & Jackalopes: A Wyoming Bar Journey” and an English professor at the University of Wyoming.

Each author will read from their respective works for 45 minutes each and then will answer audience questions.

Bas Bleu’s quarterly Poetry & Prose series showcases nationally acclaimed literary and creative writing professionals in an historic salon theatre venue. The format encourages interaction between the audience and performers, with each reading offering an open discussion and opportunities for the audience to meet the artists.
