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.

Books and Bridges: Spencer McBride, “The Myth of the Christian President”. UHBF @ Weller Book Works
Oct 25 @ 6:30 pm
Books and Bridges: Spencer McBride, "The Myth of the Christian President". UHBF @ Weller Book Works |  |  |

On October 25th, Books and Bridges presents Spencer McBride and “The Myth of the Christian President” at Weller Book Works!

In his presentation, “The Myth of the Christian President,” Spencer W. McBride describes the history of an expectation embraced by millions of twenty-first century American, namely that the president of the United States must be a Christian. The Constitution explicitly directs that there should be no religious test for federal office holding. So, from where did this extraconstitutional expectation arise? McBride uncovers the origins of this political belief in the partisan battles of the election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and demonstrates how the belief has evolved over the ensuing centuries.

This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious, or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics, and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.

Part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.

Journey’s End @ Wasatch Theatre Company

Journey's End @ Wasatch Theatre Company |  |  |

On 11/11/18 the guns fell silent.

As a tribute to the 8,500,000 men who died in World War One, and all those still in uniform, Wasatch Theatre Company and Motley Wandering Minstrels present a staged reading of “Journey’s End” by R.C.Sherriff.

Five officers live in a dugout, preparing their troops and themselves for an enemy assault they know is coming during their six-day stint on the front line. They fight, bond, reminisce, deal with boredom and PTSD, and follow orders they know are probably not the best plan.

“Portrait of life in the trenches and probably still the greatest of 20th-century English-language war dramas.“
(NY Times theater critic Ben Bradley, 2014)

“No other British play about the Great War by a veteran has supplanted it.”
(Hugh Cecil , author of “The Flower of Battle: How Britain Wrote the Great War”)
