Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

  • The event must take place in Utah.

KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.  Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.

Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read  on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.

“Why Liberals Win the Culture Wars” | Lecture on Religion and Culture by Author Stephen Prothero @ Salt Lake City Public Library (Main Branch)
Oct 6 @ 7:00 pm
"Why Liberals Win the Culture Wars" | Lecture on Religion and Culture by Author Stephen Prothero @ Salt Lake City Public Library (Main Branch) |  |  |

Prothero will discuss themes from his new book titled “Why Liberals Win The Culture Wars: (Even When They Lose Elections)”

The Obert C. and Grace A. Tanner Humanities Center at the University of Utah proudly presents the 2016 Sterling M. McMurrin Lecture on Religion & Culture by Stephen Prothero at 7 PM on Thursday, October 6, 2016 at the Salt Lake City Public Library’s Nancy Tessman Auditorium (map) downtown. The lecture is free and open to the public, tickets are not required.

Stephen Prothero is a professor in the Department of Religious Studies at Boston University. A skilled researcher and celebrated historian of religion, Prothero’s published books include: God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions that Run the World – and Why Their Differences Matter, and the New York Times bestseller Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know – and Doesn’t. In his lecture, he will address themes from his latest book Why Liberals Win The Culture Wars (Even When They Lose Elections).

“Stephen Prothero’s lecture on the liberal-conservative culture wars is particularly timely.” Taking the long view, he offers context to understand the ongoing presidential campaign and a reasoned perspective on the stakes of the contest,” said professor of History and Tanner Center director Bob Goldberg.

Prothero has appeared on National Public Radio on CNN, NBC, MSNBC, FOX, and PBS. He was also a guest on “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart, “The Colbert Report” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” A regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal and USA Today, he has also written for the New York Times, Slate, Salon, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, and the Boston Globe.

Prothero’s lecture will be followed by a brief Q&A and a book signing hosted by The King’s English Bookshop.

Held in conjunction with the Utah Humanities Book Festival, these events are supported by Utah Humanities, the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at the University of Utah David Eccles School of Business and Salt Lake City Public Library.
