Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. 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.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

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.

If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.

STAG’S LEAP by Sharon Olds at Salt Lake Acting Company @ Salt Lake Acting Company | Salt Lake City | Utah | United States

A poetic journey,
beginning at the end
of a thirty-year marriage—
While He Told Me,
and ending—
Years Later.
Unsparing,
A sensual contemplation of love, loss and
Getting on with it.

Books and Bridges: Kristin Matthews @ Weller Book Works
Jan 25 @ 6:30 pm
Books and Bridges: Kristin Matthews @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

Kristin Matthews, Professor of English at Brigham Young University, will present from her book “Reading America: Citizenship, Democracy, and Cold War Literature.” She examines how literature and reading practices reflected cold war paranoia. The desire to defeat Communism prompted a particular brand of “Americanism” at home. Politicians, educators, cultural critics, and writers linked the activity of reading with being a “good American.” Matthews situates the fiction of J. D. Salinger, Ralph Ellison, Thomas Pynchon, John Barth, and Maxine Hong Kingston within these debates, illustrating how Cold War literature was a vested participant in postwar efforts to define good reading and citizenship.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.

Collector’s Book Salon: The Great Finds Salon @ Weller Book Works
Jan 26 @ 6:15 pm
Collector's Book Salon: The Great Finds Salon @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

Wellers is quite excited to resume our monthly get-togethers for book collectors and biblio-nerds. As is Weller Book Works’ custom for the initial salon of the New Year, on January 26th, we’ll have a sharing event for collectors. This year, we are asking you to bring and show a book that was a “great find,” and tell us why you value it and how and where you found it. One of my favorite aspects of book collecting is that the knowledgeable collector has the ability to recognize important and valuable books that others would overlook. A smart book person with a modest budget will beat wealthy buyers to great books with frequency. Join us Friday, January 26th, for The Great Finds Salon. Bring a book you discovered in an unusual place, rescued from oblivion, or plucked from chaos. We’ll take turns showing our books and telling stories about our discoveries.

Readers read alone. Have you missed your bibliophilic buddies? I have. Want to make a new smart friend? Join Weller Book Works for both Collectors’ Book Salons. Friday, January 26, pick your “great find,” grab a friend, don something fine or funny and join us. On February 23 plan on hearing from Daniel Davison and seeing his interesting articles. Salons start at 6:30. The Chat begins at 7:15.
