Utah Lit, The Salt Lake Tribune’s online book club, is holding its first live panel discussion Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Viridian Events Center, 8030 S. 1825 West, West Jordan.
“If I Can’t Have You,” a true-crime novel about the 2009 disappearance of West Valley City’s Susan Powell, is the topic of the discussion. Panelists include co-author Rebecca Morris, Tribune reporter Nate Carlisle and Kiirsi Hellewell, a longtime friend of Powell’s. The Tribune’s Jennifer Napier-Pearce will moderate and the audience is encouraged to participate.
Those unable to attend or watch the livestream can hear the discussion Friday at 10 a.m. or 8 p.m. on KCPW 88.3/105.3 FM.
Reporter Ellen Fagg Weist interviewed Morris and Olsen for a story about “If I Can’t Have You”; Carlisle, who continues to cover aspects of the Powell case, reviewed the book.
The Tribune also published excerpts from the book.
