Book Club: The Inquisitor's Tale

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

Our guest presenter for the Wasatch Packtivists meeting is Lynn Weston, a naturalist with extensive experience teaching at the Yellowstone 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 Yellowstone Forever 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.

Guest Poet Mike White

Winner of the Anthony Hecht Poetry Prize. Addendum to a Miracle, Mike White's second book of poetry, is a collection that explores the shifting borderland between the sacred and the profane. The poems are lucid and often quite spare, focusing upon the ordinary things of this world, yet they pulse with the energy of the unknown, the unspeakable. In poems of a more metaphysical bent, angels appear, only their haloes have come off in the autumn wind and their wings are made of city snow. Poised between humor and terror, White's Addendum to a Miracle re-envisions the possibilities of grace. "When last did I read a poetry collection this good? These are memorable poems, and it seems insufficient to say how and why—ear, heart, mind, language and line, to be sure; also whimsy like Issa's, rhythmic and syllabic precision as good as Donald Justice's; the author's profound and beautifully understated sense of soul and darkness in people, as suggested in Laundromats, by the pool, in the men's room, and at Sunday school. If you read no other book this year, read this one." —Carol Frost ​15 Bytes, Utah's premier Art magazine, is published by Artists of Utah, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. At the beginning of each month, 15 Bytes publishes a variety of articles on Utah's art scene including artist interviews, exhibition, performance and book reviews, spotlights on galleries and more. We're happy to congratulate Mike White for being a finalist in the 15 Bytes Poetry Award and proud to welcome him to The Printed Garden to read from his work and talk about poetry with Nancy Takacs and Adam Giannelli. This was one of our favorite events last year, so we're pretty excited about it! We'll be starting at 7:00 p.m., and light refreshments will be available.



Guest Poet Nancy Takacs

In her brilliant new collection, “The Worrier,” Nancy Takacs has presented her readers with her most finely nuanced and psychologically sophisticated collection of poetry to date. Each piece is an inner dialogue, a meditation, an experiential episode that seems to reveal the true nature of our relationship with our environment fragment by fragment, as we struggle to come to terms with our place in the physical world. There are two voices — the worrier and the answer — and Takacs’ worrier is presented in diametric opposition to the natural world, and to its processes. The natural world moves forward with wildness, sometimes purely instinctively, and sometimes without any apparent impetus. Takacs seems to point out, by way of this collection, that it is our intellect, that inner voice in which we place so much trust that frequently confounds us. We are apparently, by nature, unable to trust the design and wisdom of the kingdom into which we’ve been born. We are constantly sabotaged by our rebellious sense of self-importance, and by our insistence that the natural world is something that we can, somehow, bend to our will. But our determination to understand the natural world only in our own terms will only result in the muting of the wisdom of the earth, and will leave us nothing but our own noise. An extraordinary addition to this poet’s oeuvre. ​15 Bytes, Utah's premier Art magazine, is published by Artists of Utah, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.

PHORA The Love Is Hell Tour

Guest Poet Adam Giannelli

Rain intermits, bus windows steam up, loved ones suffer from dementia—in the constantly shifting, metaphoric world of Tremulous Hinge, figures struggle to remain standing and speaking against forces of gravity, time, and language. In these visually porous poems, boundaries waver and reconfigure along the rumbling shoreline of Rockaway or during the intermediary hours that an insomniac undergoes between darkness and dawn. Through a series of self-portraits, elegies, and Eros-tinged meditations, this hovering never subsides but offers, among the fragments, momentary constellations: “moths all swarming the / same light bulb.” From the difficulties of stuttering to teetering attempts at love, from struggling to order a hamburger to tracing the deckled edge of a hydrangea, these poems tumble and hum, revealing a hinge between word and world. Ultimately, among lofting waves, collapsing hands, and darkening skies, words themselves—a stutterer's maneuvers through speech, a deceased grandfather’s use of punctuation—become forms of consolation. From its initial turbulence to its final surprising solace, this debut collection mesmerizes. ​15 Bytes, Utah's premier Art magazine, is published by Artists of Utah, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization.
