Events for Poetry and Spoken Word

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. ​ 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.

Peaks of Madness: A Collection of Utah Horror - Book Launch

Beat the summer heat with these thirty bone-chilling tales of horror! Join us as we partner with Forty-Two Books and the Utah Chapter of Horror Writers Association to celebrate the release of their fifth anthology of short horror, Peaks of Madness: A Collection of Utah Horror. The group of Utah writers who brought you It Came From the Great Salt Lake, Apocalypse Utah, and others are back with thirty new tales of terror, and the horror inside may just drive you mad! Some will resist. Others will give in willingly. You may even find that you like the psychosis of original Utah Horror. Thirty lunatics have come together to produce the finest and most original unpublished writings, since losing their minds. Experience the delusion and insanity of this new collection of horror in poetry, flash, and short fiction. Hypnotic flesh eaters, ghosts of the past, ritual killings, time loops in hell, Ted Bundy's murder-sex, sub-dermal insects, homicidal hauntings, and asylum wanderers will thrill and fascinate you on the way out of sanity. Lovecraft's typewriter will type out your last words as you lose your mind, proclaiming the stories within, the best to have ever been penned. Join us at The Printed Garden on Friday night, July 19th, and enjoy an evening of Utah horror stories as some of the contributors to Peaks of Madness: A Collection of Utah Horror regale us with their tales of terror.

Special Children's Storytime with Author Karen O'Driscoll

A true story about a chicken who raised ducklings and the surprises it brought to the barnyard. Illustrated in watercolor with pen and ink, it is a heartwarming story about moms, babies and the families we make for ourselves. Join us for a special author-led storytime for children Saturday afternoon, August 3rd. Karen O'Driscoll will read her new picture book, Buc, Buc, Mama Duck!, and two other favorites for the kids. We'll also have special coloring pages and some cookies! The storytime will begin at 2:00 p.m.

Special Children's Storytime with Author Angie Lucas

When a young boy loses his mother, an invisible dragon swoops in and perches on top of his head. A most unwelcome guest, the dragon follows him to school, sleeps on his chest at night (making it hard for him to breathe), and even crashes his birthday party. As the boy comes to terms with his mother’s death, however, his relationship with the dragon changes in surprising ways. My Big, Dumb, Invisible Dragon is a story for children dealing with loss, particularly the death of a parent. Although grief is a heavy topic, Angie Lucas and Birgitta Sif handle it deftly for children, using the metaphor of the dragon, a light tone, and touches of humor. The book shows that healing takes time and that it’s OK to experience a wide range of emotions as you process a really big loss. Join us for a special Children's Storytime with author Angie Lucas on Saturday, August 10th. Angie will read from, discuss, and sign copies of her new book, and will round out the storytime with a couple of her other favorite books. We'll have coloring pages designed by the remarkable Icelandic artist Birgitta Sif, who is also the book's illustrator. If that's not enough, we'll have cookies! This event will begin at 2:00 p.m.

My First Book Club #3: Freya & Zoose with Author Emily Butler

We're launching our first My First Book Club both to keep our younger guests reading through the summer and to give them their very first book club-style experience. Not necessarily designed as a classroom-style experience, the My First Book Club will be focused simply on creating a positive and fun social experience and getting young readers to talk about what they've read with their peers, focusing on their most and least favorite parts, as well as scratching the surface of their book selections to consider other messages and themes that the author might be conveying.

Participants should arrive at the August meeting having finished Freya & Zoose by Emily Butler. Although it's not necessary to have completed the book, guests should try to have read as much of it as possible to avoid the possibility of spoilers from other readers. During this, our third and final discussion of My First Book Club 2019, author Emily Butler will also be attending to discuss her book with our young guests! Our discussion will start at 2:00 p.m. and we'll have cookies or some type of snacks for our readers!
