Live Music and Book Signing with Robert Hunter

Rob Wildhide will become a celebrated novelist; he just knows it. But first, he'll have to overcome writer's block and survive a wayward trip to the North Woods of Maine with his new bride, Annie, and her treacherous friends (raft guides are not to be trusted!). A love story at its best and wild ride at its drunkest, Relapse careens through shaman-led weddings, car heists that lead to strange prophesies, and the inner workings of a mind rife with possibility and absolutely unaffected by the moonshine, thank you very much. Is it relapse, or is it revival? Rob Wildhide will try just about anything to find out where this story goes. Join us in welcoming Robert Hunter to The Printed Garden for an evening of literature and music. Hunter is an American singer-songwriter best known for his unique blend of lyrical alt-country-rock. His first two albums, Afterglow and Outta My Mind have been called "magnetic," and critics have called his music "hard wiring after a single listen." Now with a new studio album, largely inspired by his wife Becky, who is currently in remission after a battle with an aggressive form of cancer, and the new book, Relapse: A Love Story, Robert and Becky are out on a nationwide tour to celebrate life, love, and the madness of it all. Robert will be both performing and reading from his new book at The Printed Garden Wednesday night, January 30th. This event begins at 7:00 p.m.



Book Signing with Historian Tom Clavin

The definitive true story of Wild Bill, the first lawman of the Wild West, by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Dodge City. In July 1865, "Wild Bill" Hickok shot and killed Davis Tutt in Springfield, MO―the first quick-draw duel on the frontier. Thus began the reputation that made him a marked man to every gunslinger in the Wild West. James Butler Hickock was known across the frontier as a soldier, Union spy, scout, lawman, gunfighter, gambler, showman, and actor. He crossed paths with General Custer and Buffalo Bill Cody, as well as Ben Thompson and other young toughs gunning for the sheriff with the quickest draw west of the Mississippi. The legend of Wild Bill has only grown since his death in 1876, when cowardly Jack McCall famously put a bullet through the back of his head during a card game. Bestselling author Tom Clavin has sifted through years of western lore to bring Hickock fully to life in this rip-roaring, spellbinding true story. The Printed Garden is proud to partner with Utah Humanities to bring New York Times Bestselling Historian Tom Clavin to Salt Lake City! Tom will be discussing his new book, Wild Bill: The True Story of the American Frontier's First Gunfighter, answering questions, and signing copies of his books. This event will begin at 4:00 p.m.

A perfect story for animal and adventure lovers alike, wonderfully illustrated by Jennifer Thermes! Freya has always craved--and feared--adventure. Traipsing all over the world is simply not what dignified rockhopper penguins do. But when she hears about Captain Salomon August Andrée's hot-air balloon expedition to the North Pole, Freya packs her copy of Hints to Lady Travellers and hops on board. Only moments after leaving land, Freya discovers a fellow stowaway! Meet Zoose, the scrappy, uncouth mouse whose endless wisecracks and despicable manners make him a less-than-ideal travel companion. When the hot-air balloon is forced to land in the Arctic, these polar opposites must learn how to get along. Their very survival depends on it. We're proud to welcome debut author Emily Butler to The Printed Garden to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of her new middle grade novel, Freya & Zoose.
