Books » Utah publisher launches “art-as-advocacy” book with Salt Lake City, Moab readings.

Torrey House Press is launching "Red Rock Stories: Three Generations of Writers Speak on Behalf of Utah's Public Lands" at readings Friday in Salt Lake City and Moab.

The nonfiction collection, edited by Stephen Trimble, is an "art-as-advocacy" book, collecting stories from a variety of noted writers at a time when Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, at the direction of President Donald Trump, is reconsidering the size and scale of national monuments, including Utah's Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and Bears Ears National Monument. Readers from the Salt Lake City event include Trimble, David Lee, a former state poet laureate, novelist Jana Richman and former Rep. Karen Shepherd.




An earlier edition of the book was delivered to federal legislators last year.
