Author Signing with Candace J. Thomas

Naomi never understood what the star-shaped scar on her neck meant. Malindra only told her to keep it covered, which Naomi has, ever since the old enchantress was brutally murdered when Naomi was eleven. Now at seventeen, Naomi cares for the young Zander is the small farming community of Sharlot, where she sells her master's cuts of meat in the market. But on this day, the prince of Parbraven has arrived in the market square with his caravan. There, in the back of his carriage sits a woman, ethereal and wind-swept, silently observing the awestruck crowd--a woman with the same mark on her neck. Within that moment, time slows and the significance of what she is seeing focuses to a point. She is not alone, someone else is marked. Even as Naomi hurries to understand this connection to a stranger, she is whisked away from the discovery of her past, kidnapped by a man who knows her secret and has vowed to keep her safe. Candace J. Thomas is the winner of the LUW Diamond Award for Novel of the Year and The Silver Quill. Please help us welcome her to The Printed Garden to celebrate the re-release of her Vivatera trilogy. She'll read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of her book Vivatera. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.

Max Frost

Last year, Max Frost had a creative awakening. Since becoming a professional musician and scoring genre-mashing hits including “White Lies” and “Adderall,” the forward-thinking pop maestro felt he hadn’t shown his true colors. “I realized I needed to completely change what I was doing and what I was trying to create into something a little bolder, a little bit more honest and less controlled,” he says.

Edward Lueders The Salt Lake Papers: From the Years in the Earthscapes of Utah

Join us on March 8th, for a reading of  The Salt Lake Papers: From the Years in the Earthscapes of Utah, by Edward Lueders! Once again cast in the companionable style of journal entries and notes that readers enjoyed in Lueders’s 1977 creative nonfiction classic The Clam Lake Papers, this new investigation into language and ways of knowing follows the author’s move from the north woods of Wisconsin to the Intermountain West of Utah. The Salt Lake Papers is divided into two sections by location and time. Book One reflects the central geophysical presence of the Great Salt Lake, in view from Leuders’s home and the University of Utah campus where he studied and taught. Researched and composed during the 1980s, it is published here for the first time. Book Two begins with his retirement to the “earthscapes” of the Torrey–Capitol Reef area of southern Utah and contemplates the Colorado River system. Hydrology thus provides both the physical and the metaphysical basis for the author’s reflective insights and for the natural flow of his advancing thought. Beautifully written, The Salt Lake Papers, in varied ways, speaks to the necessity of the humanities in the modern age. At its heart, Lueders’s small book of intellectual musings explores place and the ways landscape shapes what is observant in each of us. Edward Lueders is a jazz pianist, WWII veteran, poet and retired professor from the University of Utah. He is the author of The Clam Lake Papers: A Winter in the North Woods and The Wake of the General Bliss: A Novel of World War II, and the editor of several volumes, including Writing Natural History: Dialogues with Authors. There will be a signing following the reading.
