The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

Novelists Karin Anderson (Before Us Like a Land of Dreams) and Rebecca Claren (Kickdown) bring their characters to life in a discussion on challenging dominant narratives through their writing. Moderated by Kirsten Johanna Allen, their conversation will be in the Whiting Room of the Hunter Conference Center at SUU on Tuesday, October 29 at 11:30 a.m.A gardener, writer, mother, wanderer, and heretic, Karin Anderson is a Professor of English at Utah Valley University where she focuses on creative writing, lit theory, wilderness and environmental writing, LGBTQ lit, contemporary narrative genres, and honor legacies.
