Reading & Signing with Author Alma Katsu

From the acclaimed and award-winning author of The Hunger comes an eerie, psychological twist on one of the world's most renowned tragedies, the sinking of the Titanic and the ill-fated sail of its sister ship, the Britannic. Someone, or something, is haunting the ship. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the passengers of the Titanic from the moment they set sail. The Titanic's passengers expected to enjoy an experience befitting the much-heralded ship's maiden voyage, but instead, amid mysterious disappearances and sudden deaths, find themselves in an eerie, unsettling twilight zone. While some of the guests and crew shrug off strange occurrences, several—including maid Annie Hebbley, guest Mark Fletcher, and millionaires Madeleine Astor and Benjamin Guggenheim—are convinced there's something more sinister going on. And then disaster strikes. Years later, Annie, having survived that fateful night, has attempted to put her life back together by going to work as a nurse on the sixth sailing of the Britannic, newly refitted as a hospital ship to support British forces fighting World War I. When she happens across an unconscious Mark, now a soldier, she is at first thrilled and relieved to learn that he too survived the tragic night four years earlier. But soon his presence awakens deep-buried feelings and secrets, forcing her to reckon with the demons of her past—as they both discover that the terror may not yet be over. Featuring an ensemble cast of characters and effortlessly combining the supernatural with the height of historical disaster, The Deep is an exploration of love and destiny, desire and innocence, and, above all, a quest to understand how our choices can lead us inexorably toward our doom. We're proud to partner with Penguin Publishing Group and Salt Lake County Library to welcome Alma Katsu to the Sandy Library to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of her new book, The Deep. 

Aquila Theatre: The Odyssey

One of the most famous tales in world literature, The Odyssey presents a powerful portrait of Odysseus and his epic struggle to return home — a journey fraught with obstacles, dangers and temptations. A testament to perseverance and the human spirit, The Odyssey was originally performed by highly-skilled thespians across the ancient Mediterranean world. Now, Aquila Theatre presents a stirring new adaptation of this timeless drama. Aquila’s acclaimed adaptation of The Iliad was hailed by The New York Times as “thrillingly embodied.” In The Odyssey, Aquila once again employs its signature style of inventive storytell­ing and innovative ensemble movement to bring another of Homer’s epic poems to life.

Aquila Theatre: 1984

As the modern world grapples with the threats and benefits of technological integration and advancement, Aquila Theatre’s evocative adaptation of 1984, cuts deep into the conversation of personal freedom pitted against political repression. One could easily say that Orwell’s prescient story resonates today even more than it did in 1949 when it was first published. 1984 is a classic cautionary tale by one of history’s most challeng­ing authors, and provides the kind of evocative themes that suit Aquila’s bold, ensemble-driven, physical style. The New Yorker said, “Aquila’s productions are beautifully spoken, dra­matically revealing, and crystalline in effect.

Hell's Belles

The all-female AC/DC cover band. Hell's Belles are first and foremost dedicated AC/DC fanatics. This is what we all have in common. We're all part of a huge community of devotees to one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands in the world. This is who we all are, and this is what Hell's Belles strives to deliver with mechanical precision and passionate fury. Endorsed by Angus Young himself (Blender Magazine, 2003), Hell's Belles are the closest one can get without actually moving to Australia and joining AC/DC's road crew. Hell's Belles formed in 2000, the brainchild of former member, Amy Stozenbach, alongside former member, Om Johari. The current line-up features Mandy Reed, rock solid and born ready as Cliff Williams (Bass guitar), Lisa Brisbois, sly and subtly intense as part time Malcolm Young, Sharon Needles of Betty Blowtorch/Butt Trumpet fame part time Malcolm Young (Rhythm guitar), Judy Cocuzza (JuDy-molish of Betty Blowtorch fame) as Phil Rudd (drums), all the way from Australia, Amber Saxon the kind of hard rock bombastic power that makes no apologies and is dangerous around the edges as Bon Scott & Brian Johnson (Vocals) and Adrian Conner, dreadlock slinger and wicked as Angus Young (lead Guitar). Hell's Bellesare indeed ALL female, all the way to their rock-n-roll cores, all the lime and without exception. Representing for a whole new generation of women that won't be intimidated, Hell's Bellesactively encourage our legions of lady fans to stand up and be counted, and collaborate with women musicians and causes as a part of the mission towards rock and roll inclusion. Not some down-your-throat feminism, but a proactive support and action spirit towards the continued march towards balancing of the gender scales. The thousands of shows Hell's Belles have played around the world, including Singapore, Japan, Canada, and the good ol' USA (including Alaska), have become legendary nights of epic proportions. Consistently sexy and sold-out shows - there's not a Hell's Belles audience that hasn't been blown away by the raw power, attention to AC/DC details, and undeniable appeal that these bad ass belles deliver with undying devotion. From "Live Wire" to "The Jack" to "TNT", not to mention AC/DC's landmark hits "Highway to Hell", "Thunderstruck", and "Back in Black". The marathon set lists change to include a fresh variety of classics, but the perfection and passion of the show never does. It's an all out rock-n-roll assault that leaves you both satisfied and begging for more. And, more you'll get as Hell's Belles keep conquering new cities, new states, and new countries. They'll be in your back yard bringing AC/DC in sound and spirit to you with their new recording VOL. II, so you can always count on taking a little piece of Hell's Belleshome with ya. Hell's Belles - committed, ferocious, meticulous women rock musicians delivering authentic ACIDC to the unbelievably supportive and wicked awesome fans. All day and all night long, all over the world, pitch perfect AC/ DC delivered with a highly charged vigor by Amber, Mandy, Judy, Lisa, Sharon and Adrian 'Angus’ Conner.
