Events for Kids and Family

Book Signing with Author David Habben

It’s the little things that can turn a bad day into a better one. One morning, Sherman’s bad mood takes the form of a literal rain cloud, soaking him and making his mood—and the weather—worse. An unexpected encounter with imaginative children helps Mr. Sherman find the silver lining to his cloud and brightens his day, turning his outlook from pessimism into optimism. ‚Äč The expressive graphic art creates an eye-catching and meaningful story. Readers will be empathetic to Sherman’s woes and uplifted when reminded that the sun does eventually come out again after the rain. Join us in welcoming David Habben to Provo City LIbrary on the evening of Wednesday, June 19th, to discuss and sign copies of his new picture book, Mr. Sherman's Cloud. This event will begin at 7:00 p.m.

The Amazing Acro-cats in Salt Lake City

The Amazing Acro-cats in Salt Lake City at The Sugar Space Fur an intimate purrformance 6/27 and 6/28 7pm 6/29 3pm 7pm 6/30 1pm 5pm

The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of touring performing house cats. This one-of-a-kind, two hour long purrformance features talented domesticated house cats roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops, and more! The finale is the only all-cat band in the entire world - Tuna and the Rock Cats! The current band lineup features Nola on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keyboard, and NOW some brand new members: Ahi on woodblocks and Albacore on cowbell, Buggles on trumpet, and Oz on Saxophone. There is even a chicken - Cluck Norris - rockin’ the tambourine! “I can die happy now!” an audience member has claimed after seeing the band.

It all started with Chief Executive Human (or CEH for short) and cat lover Samantha Martin. Training animals at a young age, she knew instantly she would be working with animals for the rest of her life. By founding Rock Cats Rescue, the real reason behind having a traveling animal show, she has saved the lives of over 215 cats and kittens. Using the magic of clicker training, Samantha (and a few other humans) travel with over 15 cats and kittens all across the United States, educating and entertaining audiences that cats actually can be trained. Currently recovering from stage 3 cancer, she tenaciously continues to save the lives of cats and kittens through rescue, foster, and adoption. Featured on national TV shows like the 2016 Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, Tuna and the Rock Cats purrformed the half-time honors! Their most recent national appearance was on Adult Swim. For more information on the show, as well as videos of the cats, visit http://www.circuscats.com This event is suitable for cat lovers of all ages.
