Our Community Calendar is a volunteer-run resource offered 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.
The Community Calendar also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, mail or bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10, Salt Lake City, UT 84111. 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.
We 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. 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.
NOTE: approved events are typically posted to the Community Calendar within seven days of your submission.
Please submit requests at least 14 days before your event – listings read on-air are chosen at random, the week of the event.
Join us for an evening with author Craig Childs and musician Kate MacLeod. The performance will take place on Friday, January 10 at 7:00 pm at Ken Sanders Rare Books. This event is free and open to the public.
Craig Childs is known for following ancient migration routes on foot, following lines of pre-Columbian trade the Southwest, and, most recently, ways used by the first people to enter the Americas in the Ice Age. He has published more than a dozen books of adventure, wilderness, and science, including his latest, Atlas of a Lost World: Travels in Ice Age America. He has won the Orion Book Award and has twice won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award, the Galen Rowell Art of Adventure Award, and the Spirit of the West Award for his body of work. He is contributing editor at Adventure Journal Quarterly, and his writing has appeared in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Men’s Journal, and Outside. The New York Times says “Childs’s feats of asceticism are nothing if not awe-inspiring: he’s a modern-day desert father.” He has a BA in Journalism from CU Boulder with a minor in Women’s Studies, and from Prescott College, an MA in Desert Studies. An occasional commentator for NPR’s Morning Edition, he has taught writing at University of Alaska in Anchorage and the Mountainview MFA at Southern New Hampshire University. He lives outside of Norwood, Colorado.
Kate MacLeod is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Her style is inspired by Easter European music, by Classical training, and by a lifetime steeped in American and Celtic traditional music. She performs throughout the United States and in Europe, teaches at music camps, and performs as an instrumentalist and vocalist with other touring musicians.
This event is presented by Torrey House Press and Ken Sanders Rare Books. Torrey House Press is also supported by Utah Division of Arts & Museums and by Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks.
