Utah Lit: ‘Train’ chugs through history, culture of railroads

In "Train," author Tom Zoellner journeys by rail from Scotland to Lands’ End, New York to Los Angeles, the Trans-Siberian Railroad and more, logging some thoughtful details about the technology, its cultural influences and history while meeting some colorful travelers along the way. From the effects of feces on railway tracks in India to the ubiquity of locomotive motifs in American music, Zoellner examines railroads from every angle and takes readers along for the ride.

On Friday at 12:15 p.m., Tribune columnist Ann Cannon, managing editor Lisa Carricaburu and reporter Jennifer Napier-Pearce discuss "Train" and Zoellner’s fascination with the iron horse during the Tribune’s monthly book club, Utah Lit.
