Wanted: Book lovers and good conversation
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2014, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Salt Lake Tribune is launching a new monthly online book club and you're invited to participate.

We're calling it Utah Lit, and it's an opportunity to explore Utah and regional writers who take on New West issues in novels, poetry and nonfiction. We'll also highlight Utah women writers and the female characters they create, the state's many writers of genre books, and books that provide context to our state's cultural divide and extend the conversation in interesting ways.

Our inaugural selection is "The Ordinary Truth" by Jana Richman, the compelling story of a ranching family divided by a proposed water pipeline that would draw water from western Utah to Las Vegas.

Look for a story about the book and its author later this month and join us on Jan. 31 at 12:15 p.m. for a live TribTalk video chat about the book. Jennifer Napier-Pearce will moderate the discussion.

Tribune readers are book lovers, so we hope this feature will start a whole new community conversation about the stories, issues and authors that inform and illuminate life in the Beehive State. Send questions or your book recommendations to jnpearce@sltrib.com. You also may follow Utah Lit on Twitter: @utahlit or find more information on the club's Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/utahlit.
