Book Launch and Signing with Poet Nathan Hauke

"If the word takes root, & the phrase finds traction to stay on the page, as we read along we thank Nathan Hauke for giving us the trail that is Indian Summer Recycling. A way into words that deepens our joy, gratitude, & clarity for our impermanent life in this world. Composting the ghostly reverberations of what is heard, & seen. Composing, decomposing, partnering in the dance of presence and absence. A poetry where even the cross-outs sing (softly). This is a beautiful blues music?of Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, & John Milton?reclaiming the moment when spirit speaks, speaking through the moment most clearly in its erasure, its disappearance. Places peopled deeply. A sustaining domesticity, an undercurrent of familial affection. Hauke's is an ethical way of writing, with deep roots in early American literature. The way to the heights is word by word, step by step." - Hank Lazer Join us for a book launch event celebrating the release of poet Nathan Hauke's new collection of work Indian Summer Recycling. Joining Nathan Hauke will be Utah Poet Laureate Paisley Rekdal. Both poets will be reading their work, discussing poetry and signing copies of their books. Take the night off, sit back, and enjoy some of the best new poetry produced in the state of Utah. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Brandi Carlile

Don’t miss Brandi Carlile on Friday, December 6th at Vivint Smart Home Arena. Tickets on sale Friday, August 16, 2019. Three-time Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, performer and producer Brandi Carlile is currently in the midst of a landmark year following the release of her Grammy Award-winning album, By The Way, I Forgive You. Produced by Dave Cobb and Shooter Jennings and recorded at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A, the album includes ten new songs written by Carlile and longtime collaborators and bandmates Tim and Phil Hanseroth, including “The Joke.” Of her breakthrough performance of the song on the live Grammy broadcast, The New York Times proclaimed, “Carlile’s vocals were robust, ragged, full of sneer and hope. On a night curiously light on impressive singing, it was an uncomplicated, genuine, cleansing thrill,” while the Los Angeles Times called it, “triumphant” and Rolling Stone described it as, “breathtaking.”
