Letters & Conversations

The state legislative session is over, and we are entering the Interim period of the year when legislators go back to their day jobs and come together once a month to study and debate current issues facing Utah and policies to address them. That means there is plenty of opportunity for community members to stay engaged and impact the issues. Learn how you can make a meaningful difference over Interim by attending an upcoming Action Utah Letters & Conversations event! These popular workshops will give you tools and ideas for becoming more civically engaged leading up to the next election and 2020 state legislative session. Sign up for Letters & Conversations! Get all your questions answered at this casual community workshop! Action Utah provides how-to’s, tips and tools so you can make a meaningful difference with your civic engagement over Interim, including: - How to communicate with your elected officials at any level of government so you can get your voice heard - When to call vs when to email and how to email effectively - Tools for in-person meetings - How to write a letter to the editor that sways hearts, minds and votes No experience necessary.

What is Independent Bookstore Day? Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April. Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different! There are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online. Why celebrate independent bookstores? Independent bookstores are not just stores, they’re community centers and local anchors run by passionate readers. They are entire universes of ideas that contain the possibility of real serendipity. They are lively performance spaces and quiet places where aimless perusal is a day well spent. Come get your indie on!



The Cactus Blossoms

The Cactus Blossoms – Minneapolis-based brothers Page Burkum and Jack Torrey – offer compelling evidence that this tradition is alive and well, with a deceptively unadorned musical approach that offers “creative turns of phrase, gorgeous harmonies, and an ageless sound”
