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.

  • The event must take place in Utah.

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.

Desert Cabal Discussion with Amy Irvine @ Utah Valley University
Oct 22 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Desert Cabal Discussion with Amy Irvine @ Utah Valley University  |  |  |

Come grab your copy of Desert Cabal!

Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness turns 50 this fall, and is due for a celebration and a talking to. In Desert Cabal, Amy Irvine helps to make contemporary the dated, white male narrative that is still very much at the heart of today’s wilderness movement—even as she celebrates the lens through which Abbey taught so many to love the wild remains of the nation. From a quiet solitude to a roaring cabal, Ed Abbey has met his match in Amy Irvine.

Mostly White Discussion with Alison Hart @ Salt Lake City Public Library
Oct 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Mostly White Discussion with Alison Hart @ Salt Lake City Public Library |  |  |

Alison Hart discusses her new book, Mostly White, a story that spans four generations of a mixed-race family. This book is a powerful tale of inter-generational trauma and the healing brought by wildness, music, and the resilience of women. From Emma, who survives the abuse of an Indian Residential school in 1890s Maine, to Ella, who navigates color lines in 1980s New York City, Alison Hart’s unforgettable characters fight to form their own identities and honor the call of their ancestors.

Alison Hart studied theater at New York University and later found her voice as a writer. She identifies as a mixed-race African American, Passamaquoddy Native American, Irish, Scottish, and English woman of color. Her poetry collection Temp Words was published by Cosmo Press in 2015, and her poems appear in Red Indian Road West: Native American Poetry from California (Scarlet Tanager Books, 2016) and elsewhere.
