Eileen Hallet Stone: Auerbach’s: The Store that Performs What It Promises @ Weller Book Works

Eileen Hallet Stone: Auerbach's: The Store that Performs What It Promises @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

Join us Wednesday, December 12, at 6:30 PM, as we welcome Eileen Hallet Stone to the store for a presentation and signing of Auerbach’s: The Store that Performs What It Promises!

After an arduous journey to Utah’s Mormon frontier, three Jewish immigrant brothers built a flagship institution that lasted more than a century in downtown Salt Lake City. The F. Auerbach & Bros. story is one of personal challenges, Prussian folktales, perilous sea voyages, Wild West tenacity and those elegant and sophisticated fashions found on the second floor. Built along railroad tracks and dressing boomtown “Ladies of Aristocracy” in finery, Auerbach’s tent stores evolved into one of the finest retailers in state history, providing something for everyone under one roof. Award-winning author and former Salt Lake Tribune columnist Eileen Hallet Stone brings to life the magical moments of the shopping dynasty that lasted until 1979.

Award-winning author and former Salt Lake Tribune columnist Eileen Hallet Stone’s projects include Historic Tales of Utah, Hidden History of Utah, A Homeland in the West: Utah Jews Remember and Missing Stories: An Oral History of Ethnic and Minority Groups in Utah, co-authored with Leslie Kelen. Her commentary is featured in the 2015 documentary film Carvalho’s Journey.

The presentation will begin at 6:30, with a signing to follow.

Unexpected Warriors: African American Diplomatic and Military Contributions on the World Stage @ Jewett Arts Center, Westminster College-SLC |  |  |

The history of African American contributions to America’s foreign policy and freedom have been unexpected, non-traditional, and often overlooked. Learn about some of the diplomacy and combat pioneers who fully embraced what it means to be an American and gladly fought for our stated values and ideals. Learn of their perseverance and sacrifice through the eyes of one amongst them – a diplomat with three siblings who served in the U.S. military. Ambassador Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley will explore the continuum from the first black consuls appointed after the Civil War to the first African American female ambassador to Ambercrombie-Winstanley’s personal experience of leading a diplomatic mission and surviving a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia.

Why Earth Needs an International Global Ocean Observing System @ Jewett Arts Center, Westminster College-SLC
Mar 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Why Earth Needs an International Global Ocean Observing System @ Jewett Arts Center, Westminster College-SLC |  |  |

The ocean impacts Earth’s climate and weather, provides critical food and energy resources, plays an enormous role in the global economy, and directly effects the well-being of coastal communities. Despite the critical role oceans play, only recent technical breakthroughs have allowed people to maintain a sustained presence in the sea and thoroughly understand its wide range of societal benefits. Dr. Oscar Schofield will review these new discoveries and provide examples of how they directly benefit society while creating new diplomatic challenges and opportunities. Schofield will also review plans and strategies for developing a global observing system ranging from deep ocean, melting polar regions, and coastal waters.

Muslims for American Progress: An Evidenced Based Portrait of American Muslims @ Jewett Arts Center, Westminster College-SLC
Apr 2 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Muslims for American Progress: An Evidenced Based Portrait of American Muslims @ Jewett Arts Center, Westminster College-SLC |  |  |

It is commonly said that we fear what we do not understand. Living up to our American ideals requires us to understand our neighbors, our colleagues, and our friends despite our diverse backgrounds. Yet in recent years, Muslims in America have rarely been portrayed as nuanced and complex human beings, and the reality is most Americans say they do not know a Muslim personally. In an effort to correct this, Institute for Social Policy and Understanding launched the Muslims for American Progress (MAP) project. MAP pairs human stories with hard facts and quantifies the contributions of Muslims in the state of Michigan in eight areas. Ms. Dalia Mogahed, ISPU’s Director of Research, will present the findings from this project.
