Set aside books that inspire films. For Utah-based singer-songwriter Kate MacLeod, a more novel idea is how a plot point or scene in a book can inspire a song.
MacLeod's literary-inspired songs will be highlighted at her concert Sunday, Sept. 29, at 4:30 p.m. at Library Square in Salt Lake City as part of the Utah Humanities Council's Book Festival.
She has been writing songs inspired by her reading for some 30 years, and plans to release a collection of 13 literary-inspired songs. The CD, recorded at Ken Sanders Rare Books, will be available at her concerts before its December release date.
