In February, you'll also want to reserve out some time for the Loft's Literary Love Fest as local literati shine as they riff about love. Or hate. Or the departure of an ex. Family. Community. Whatever makes their hearts go pitter patter around Valentine's Day. Featuring multiple readers and genres. Always a good time.
