Event Details

Join writers Karin Anderson, Lynn Kilpatrick, and Julie Nichols in a conversation about writing and exploring voices that often go unheard in the cowboy-trodden American West. How do you challenge dominant narratives? How do you research for writing based in place? The discussion and reading will be held on the 4th floor of the Salt Lake City Library on Monday, November 4 at 6:30 p.m.

A gardener, writer, mother, wanderer, and heretic, Karin Anderson is a Professor of English at Utah Valley University where she focuses on creative writing, lit theory, wilderness and environmental writing, LGBTQ lit, contemporary narrative genres, and honor legacies. She is the author of the novel Before Us Like a Land of Dreams, and her work has appeared in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Quarter After Eight, Western Humanities Review, Sunstone, Saranac Review, American Literary Review, and Fiddleblack. She has been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and holds degrees from Utah State University, Brigham Young University, and the University of Utah. She hails from the Great Basin.

Lynn Kilpatrick earned an MA in poetry from Western Washington University and a PhD in fiction from the University of Utah. She is the author of In the House (University of Alabama Press 2010), and her poetry, fiction and non-fiction have appeared in Tin House, Hotel Amerika, Ninth Letter, and Creative Nonfiction. She lives in Salt Lake City with her husband and son.

Julie Nichols was raised in San Francisco and came to Utah on scholarship to attend Brigham Young University, where Eugene England mentored her as a creative-writing teacher. She worked as an adjunct writing instructor at BYU until the publication of several of her unconventional stories led to her contract not being renewed. In 2002, she was hired on the faculty at UVU. She is the author of Pigs When they Straddle the Air (Zarahemla Books, 2016).

This event is presented by Torrey House Press and Utah Humanities. This event has received funding from the Utah Humanities Council. The Utah Humanities Council (UHC) enriches our cultural, intellectual, and civic life by providing opportunities for all Utahns to explore life’s most engaging questions and the wonders of the human experience. Torrey House Press is also supported by Salt Lake City Zoo, Arts & Parks and the Utah Division of Arts & Museums, with funding from the State of Utah and National Endowment for the Arts.
