For 12,000 years, people have left a rich record of their experiences in Utah’s Capitol Reef National Park. In the new book The Capitol Reef Reader, award-winning author and photographer Stephen Trimble has put together 160 years’ worth of words by 50 writers, capturing the spirit of the park and its surrounding landscape through personal narratives, philosophical riffs, and historic and scientific records. The narrative is anchored by more than 100 photographs, including pictures from Trimble’s 45 years of hiking the park. Trimble will share some of these photos and stories as well as anecdotes from his detective work to unearth stellar pieces of writing to create a one-of-a-kind volume of this special place.
Stephen Trimble will give presentations at multiple locations as part of the "Keeping History Alive" series at the Garfield County Libraries. You are invited to attend the one most convenient for your schedule:
Friday, January 17 • 6:30 p.m. • Glenwood Springs Branch Library
Saturday, January 18 • 2 p.m. • Silt Branch Library
