Event Details

Join us at The King’s English Bookshop for the launch of author Craig Childs’ new book of essays, Virga & Bone: Essays from Dry Places, illustrated by local SLC artist Claire Taylor.

Dwelling on a vivid series of desert icons—a sheet of virga over Monument Valley, white seashells in dry desert sand, boulders impossibly balanced—Virga & Bone delves into the primacy of our starkest landscapes and the profound nature of the more-than-human.

Craig Childs has published more than a dozen critically acclaimed books, including The Secret Knowledge of Water and his most recent, Atlas of a Lost World. He has won the Orion Book Award and has twice won the Sigurd F. Olson Nature Writing Award, the Galen Rowell Art of Adventure Award, and the Spirit of the West Award for his body of work. He is a contributing editor at Adventure Journal Quarterly and his work has appeared in the Atlantic, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times. He lives in southwest Colorado.

Claire Taylor is an artist and illustrator based in Salt Lake City, UT. Her work is inspired by the liminal space between the wild and urban, encounters with other species and experiences of the sublime. She has a master’s of science in Environmental Humanities from the University of Utah. Her website is www.clairetaylor.art.

This event is presented by The King’s English Bookshop and Torrey House Press. Spots in the signing line are reserved for those who buy the book from The King’s English (pre-order it by visiting their website or by calling to let them know you’ll be at the event). This event is supported in part by the Utah Humanities Center for the Book; Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks; and Utah Division of Arts & Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and National Endowment for the Arts.
