Each year around the Colorado Gold Conference, Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers recognizes members who have significantly contributed to the success of our organization over the years. These individuals are honored for their talent and abilities, as well as the leadership they've shown.
It is my distinct pleasure to share with you this year's honoree. Please join me in honoring Alice Kober, who has been named this year's Honored Guiding Member.
2017 Honored Guiding Member
Adult Fiction Librarian, Arapahoe Libraries
Alice Kober has been a member of RMFW for over 20 years. She has volunteered for numerous jobs, including Conference Chair and RMFW President, and was given the Jasmine Award in 2005 to honor the long-term service of individuals to the organization.
After writing for business for many years, she changed careers and became a librarian 15 years ago. She’s currently the Adult Fiction Collection Librarian for Arapahoe Libraries and buys both print and e-book fiction.
She especially loves buying books by Colorado authors.
Be sure to check out Alice's class at 2017 Colorado Gold Conference where she talks about the importance of book covers and the role they play in genre. From a librarian who chooses the books that sit on the shelves in Arapahoe County libraries, it's definitely a must-attend. Read more from Alice in an interview she did for the RMFW Blog!
