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. Book sale and signing to follow.
All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
