Segment 1:

To say Robert Sabuda makes pop-up books is accurate, but understated. Sabuda’s 3-D creations are as much impressive works of art and engineering as they are endearing children’s stories. On Thursday, the New York Times best-selling author joins us to talk about his passion for pop-up.

Guest:

  • Robert Sabuda

 

Robert Sabuda will speak about life as a paper engineer on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City. A reception will follow the presentation on Level 4 in Special Collections.

Segment 2:

Utah’s Baha’i community is joining others of the faith to celebrate a remarkable cross-country journey that occurred 100 years ago. Abdu’l-Baha – the son of the founder of the Baha’i faith – came to America in 1912 to share a message of peace and equality. He visited 50 U.S. cities, including Salt Lake City. On Thursday, we learn more about Abdu’l-Baha in America.

Guest:

  • Robert H. Stockman, DePaul University instructor and director of the Wilmette Institute.

 

Robert H. Stockman will discuss his book, “Abdu’l-Bahá in America,” on Thursday, Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. in Salt Lake City’s Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Salt Lake City. The lecture is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable and Salt Lake Baha’i Faith Community.
