I was excited to hear that one of the hottest authors around is making a stop in Utah this week. There are actually three events that you can catch him at around Salt Lake City. See the schedule below. Whitehead has been around for several years and already has a few books under his belt, but his most recent, The Underground Railroad, really brought him into the national and international spotlight. He has been one of the few figures in the world of fiction that has received attention and praise from both literary critics as well as popular media sources. I am happy to call Salt Lake my home, but we just don’t get that many visits from great writers like this. If you are in the area be sure to catch Colson Whitehead at one of these events!
