CityViews 3/13/12: “The Last Myth”/Vegans in SLC


Segment 1:


From the “Left Behind” book series to 2012, the apocalypse has gone from the fringes to the mainstream. In a new book, Utah authors Mathew Barrett Gross and Mel Gilles explore the origins of end-times thinking and why we’re so fascinated with the end of civilization today.


  • Mathew Barrett Gross, author, “The Last Myth”

Gross will read from “The Last Myth: What the Rise of Apocalyptic Thinking Tells Us About America” at a book signing Friday, March 16 at 7 p.m. at The King’s English Bookshop, 1511 S. 1500 E., Salt Lake City.




Segment 2:


It’s official: Salt Lake City is on the map for vegan dining. The current issue of VegNews has anointed the Utah’s capital as “The Next Great Vegan City.” On Tuesday, we’ll talk with local vegans about why vegan resonates with so many Salt Lakers.
