Book Club – “The Inquisitor’s Tale” (Fantasy) @ J
Oct 17 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Book Club - "The Inquisitor's Tale" (Fantasy) @ J  |  |  |

Available on the shelf at Marriott Library and for purchase at the Campus Store.

Three children from vastly different backgrounds, and their holy greyhound, band together as unlikely friends when they unexpectedly become fugitives on the run. Each with a certain special power, the community questions whether the children are saints or devilish sinners. Themes of persecution, racism, and judgement, along with unique storytelling style and even doodles throughout the pages, come together to craft a book bound to spark curiosity.

Focused on maintaining one’s curiosity and desire to investigate, this book club follows a traditional format by meeting to discuss the same book. Discussion and readings are short. The club rotates between book genres every month. Pick the genre that most intrigues you, read the book, and attend the event.

Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction @ Salt Lake City Main Library Room C |  |  |

Our guest presenter for the Wasatch Packtivists meeting is Lynn Weston, a naturalist with extensive experience teaching at the Yellowstone Forever Institute beginning in 2000. Lynn will present “Unique Stories of the Yellowstone Wolf Reintroduction.” The return of wolves to Yellowstone is clearly one of the most dramatic events in ecological history, but there are many personal, unique and unknown stories during that time that are truly captivating and exciting. Prepare for some surprises as we explore these stories surrounding the reintroduction and issues regarding the Crystal Creek acclamation pen during 1995. Lynn is currently working with an YF Institute class entitled “Wolves: Mythology and Reality.” Lynn became involved in the wolf Environmental Impact Statement in 1994 and was one of the first to assist the researchers and biologists in wolf location, pack behavior, and wolf dynamics in 1996. When not in Yellowstone, Lynn volunteers at the Ogden Nature Center assisting with school programs in field ecology and recently developed a docent program. Free and open to the public.
