ACME Session: Railroad Stories: Community Voices and Regional Perspectives

Free The story of America’s railroad is complicated and dynamic because it isn’t a single story: it’s many stories. These narratives—including those from our own communities—are personal and significant in ways that aren’t always reflected in how we talk about this shared history.

In conjunction with the UMFA's exhibition Race to Promontory: The Transcontinental Railroad and the American West and the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike, join us for an evening of community conversation, reflection, collaboration, and art making that explores the railroad’s impact on our families, towns, and lives.

Presenters: Katherine Kitterman, Historical Director, Better Days 2020 Darren Parry, Chairman, Northwestern Band of the Shoshone Nation Judge Michael Kwan, President, Chinese Railroad Workers Descendants Association Fred E. Woods, Professor, Church History & Doctrine, Brigham Young University

Luminaria Presenters and activity leaders: Luminaria co-founders Christine Baczek and David Hyams will discuss the photographic technologies and challenges of the Race to Promontory era, provide sample prints and plates for handling, and share photographic equipment used to create those images.

Author Signing with Rosalyn Eves

"Prepare to be spellbound" in this fast-paced and action-packed final installment of the Blood Rose Rebellion trilogy, perfect for fans of Six of Crows. The Binding is broken. Mátyás is alive. And Anna Arden is on the run. It seems, yet again, that breaking the Binding has shattered the world. And the only hope of mending it is Anna and Mátyás, working together. But it's never that simple, is it? The praetheria, the creatures once held captive by the spell, are now waging war against the Austro-Hungarian empire. And they are holding Noémi hostage--using her life to manipulate Anna and Mátyás, like marionettes on a string. Gábor has elected to stay behind, to fight in the Hungarian army's resistance, while Anna and Mátyás search for their beloved Noémi--a mission doomed from the start, cloaked in praetherian magic. Magic that relies on illusion and misdirection. Eventually, there's only one way to save her: to split up. And to walk right into the lion's den. When everyone thinks they're fighting each other for the same thing--freedom--can anyone truly win? The Printed Garden is proud to welcome author Rosalyn Eves to our store to read from, answer questions about, and sign copies of the third book in her Blood Rose Rebellion trilogy, Winter War Awakening.
