Event Details

Join Torrey House Press as we launch our latest chapbook, Sites & Sightlines. Hear from essay contributors Karin Anderson, Zak Breckenridge, Katherine Bui, Taylor Cunningham, Ben Kilbourne, Easton Smith, Michelle Wentling, and others who unearth hidden environmental histories rooted in place.

Sites & Sightlines invites new ways to explore our home communities and ecosystems, starting where we are: Salt Lake City. As we immerse ourselves in overlooked sites and unmapped spaces, we may begin to see and hear neglected stories in our midst.

This chapbook grew out of Gretchen Henderson’s graduate writing seminar on Tectonic Essays. Through thoughtful noticing and research on chosen sites across the University of Utah campus, students excavated untold and unseen stories. In collaboration with this course, Torrey House Press has collected essays written by community members, bridging the words of students with those of the broader community. By connecting individual sites, we are hoping to set up collective sightlines: new paths to explore together.
