Cancelled World Affairs Lecture Series: James Lindsay

Join James Lindsay in exploring how America emerged from the catastrophe of World War II convinced that global engagement and leadership were essential to prevent another global conflict and further economic devastation. That choice was not inevitable, but its success proved monumental. It brought decades of great power peace, underpinned the rise in global prosperity, and defined what it meant to be an American in the eyes of the rest of the world for generations.

James M. Lindsay is senior vice president, director of studies, and Maurice R. Greenberg chair at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), where he oversees the work of the more than six dozen fellows in the David Rockefeller Studies Program. He is a leading authority on the American foreign policymaking process and the domestic politics of American foreign policy. Before returning to CFR in 2009, Dr. Lindsay was the inaugural director of the Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law at the University of Texas at Austin, where he held the Tom Slick chair for international affairs at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs. From 2003 to 2006, he was vice president, director of studies, and Maurice R. Greenberg chair at CFR. He previously served as deputy director and senior fellow in the foreign policy studies program at the Brookings Institution. From 1987 until 1999, he was a professor of political science at the University of Iowa. From 1996 to 1997, Dr. Lindsay served as director for global issues and multilateral affairs on the staff of the National Security Council. He has also served as a consultant to the United States Commission on National Security/21st Century (Hart-Rudman Commission) and as a staff expert for the United States Institute of Peace's congressionally mandated Task Force on the United Nations. Dr. Lindsay has written widely on various aspects of American foreign policy and international relations. His most recent book, co-authored with Ivo H. Daalder, is The Empty Throne: America’s Abdication of Global Leadership. His previous book with Ambassador Daalder, America Unbound: The Bush Revolution in Foreign Policy, was awarded the 2003 Lionel Gelber Prize, named a finalist for the Arthur S. Ross Book Award, and selected as a top book of 2003 by the Economist. Dr. Lindsay’s other books include Agenda for the Nation (with Henry J. Aaron and Pietro S. Nivola), which was named an "Outstanding Academic Book of 2004" by Choice Magazine, and Congress and the Politics of U.S. Foreign Policy. He has also contributed articles to many major newspapers and magazines, including Foreign Affairs, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times. He writes the blog The Water's Edge, which discusses the politics of American foreign policy and the domestic underpinnings of American global power. He hosts the weekly podcast, The President’s Inbox, and co-hosts the weekly podcast, The World Next Week.

Postponed White Denim

In his 1942 essay The Myth of Sisyphus, Camus wrote that “All great deeds and all great thoughts have a ridiculous beginning. Great works are often born on a street corner or in a restaurant's revolving door.” 15 years later Richard Wayne Penniman wrote “Wop bop a loo bop a wop bam boom”, an undeniably powerful vocalization that on any given Wednesday in any given situation, civilized or otherwise, is still fully capable of setting somebody’s stuff aflame. Over ten years and seven long players into their career, White Denim are still in the relentless pursuit of a thread - in other words, a wick. The Austin,Texas band have carefully and continuously studied the greatest records ever made, but they write songs just dumb enough to drink, dance, and fight to. Theirs is a music that aims for the whole body, while equally satisfying the mind. While it has morphed, expanded, and even burst apart, White Denim’s sincere and human drive and ability to spark true rock & roll exhilaration have been unerring constants of the band’s 10-year existence. “White Denim are one of the best live bands you will ever see if you live to be a million. That’s not excitable hyperbole, merely a bald statement of undeniable fact...” — Time Out “The last great rock & roll band!” — The Guardian"

Cancelled Repertory Dance Theatre Presents Earth Tone

Earth Tone features: Dancing Bears Ears (2017) by Zvi Totheiner is a tribute to Utah’s newly designated Bears Ears National Monument. The piece explores through movement this extraordinary landscape with its high mountain peaks; deep canyons; long, broken mesas; astounding arches and stately red-rock cliffs.

Castor and Polllus (1958) by Elizabeth Waters merges the theories and movements of the Hanya Holm dance technique with movement qualities inspired by Pueblo Indian rituals.

An Ode to You, is a World Premier by Rebecca Aneloski. This piece has come from much time considering the earth, society's effects on it, and the outcome of what will happen if we all do not remember it. Time is not on our side and to continue forward, in the same manner, will only determine who is finally forgot.

Tickets $30, Students and Seniors $15 (price increases $5 day of show) Tickets can be purchased through rdtutah.org  More information at https://rdtutah.org/shows/earth_tone.html



cancelled The Ventures

Postponed Todd Snider

One morning near the end of August, Todd Snider was relaxing with a visitor on the back porch of his house just outside Nashville, drinking coffee and shooting the breeze while his dog, Cowboy Jim, took a nap nearby. After awhile, Snider said to his guest, ""I've got an album's worth of songs, and I think the songs are telling me to make a folk record.

Snider has long been recognized as one of his generation's most gifted and engaging songwriters, so it's no surprise he has returned with a brilliant set of songs -- and make no mistake, Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3 contains some of his best work as a writer. But what really jumps out on the album is Snider's growth as a musician and vocalist. He plays all the instruments on the record, and his guitar work and harmonica playing are nothing short of exceptional; not only full of feeling, but highly skilled. If Snider is anything, he is a true artist, and he reminds us of that on Cash Cabin Sessions, Vol. 3. At a point in time when the world has never been more complicated and confusing, with people getting louder and louder, Snider did a 180, went back to his roots as a folksinger, to a simpler, quieter form of expression; and it might be what the world is waiting to hear: just a man, his guitar, and the truth.

Cancelled Reading & Signing with Horror Writers of America Utah Chapter Members

We're excited to welcome the Utah Chapter of Horror Writers Association back to The Printed Garden to launch their new collection of horror fiction by Utah writers! If you were here for the release of their previous collection, The Peaks of Madness last year, you know that something good (and creepy) is coming! Join us for an evening of chilling fiction as a few of the contributors to the new collection They Walk Among Us, read their terrifying selections, and sign copies of the anthology. Daniel Curaton, the editor of They Walk Among Us, will also be reading from his new book, Monster Brain. Enter a world where anxiety rules and compulsion is the tool. Like fighting a dragon with a tooth pick, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder takes many forms and has many techniques to torture and abuse its victims. It feeds on fear, dread, and suffering. To relieve the pain, sufferers develop habits, called compulsions, deflecting OCD's obsessive gaze for a while, before it breaks through and returns with a vengeance. This book is a work of art, on public exhibition. You will find 50 original poems and writings dealing with OCD, it's affects, and rediscovering that there is life after diagnosis. Travel alongside one man's journey as he falls into the dark recesses of his mind, finds inner strength, and is reborn in this narrative of the inner worlds. Allow yourself to experience the beauty and terror of Monster Brain. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.



Postponed Ian Noe

"Ian Noe draws on the day-to-day life of Eastern Kentucky on his debut album, Between the Country. Recorded in Nashville with unhurried production by Dave Cobb, these 10 original songs introduce a number of complicated characters, diverse in their own downfalls but bound together by Noe’s singular voice. “I’ve always thought that Eastern Kentucky had a certain kind of sound, and I can’t really explain it any better than that,” he says. “What I was trying to do was write songs that sounded like where I was living.” Noe now lives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, about an hour north of Nashville, where his bandmates are based. After years of writing songs alone and playing solo acoustic sets, he now prefers touring with a band, making it possible to carry the overall mood of Between the Country out on the road as well.  Amid these uncluttered arrangements and a relaxed vibe, Noe’s evocative voice truly stands out. “I wanted a warm sound – that analog sound,” Noe says. “When we were getting the rough mixes going, that’s how it sounded, and that’s the direction it went in. You want people to be able to hear what you’re saying and what you’re singing about, and I think analog makes a good song stand the test of time.”
