The Unheard Voices of the American West

Torrey House Press: Utah Valley University welcomes Karin Anderson, Lynn Kilpatrick and other UVU authors for a panel on the Unheard Voices of the American West. Find them at CB510.Anderson's BEFORE US LIKE A LAND OF DREAMS follows a disheartened Utah mother traveling an evocative route through the sites of her arid Western ancestry. As her narration fades, the dead speak their stories: a ragged Mormon boy; a hoarders queer son; descendants of British squatters. They give no answers, but conjure vivid moments set in iconic and diminishing American places. This event is made possible by the support of Utah Valley University and Torrey House Press.
