Hello! It's the last week of Utah Book Month. It's hard to believe it's almost over. But it's not over yet. Here's what's happening during week four!
WEEK FOUR THEME: UTAH BOOKS
Our focus this week is on all of the lovely Utah books. We usually define Utah books as those written by authors who currently live in Utah. But it can really go farther than that to books set in Utah or by authors that used to live in Utah, etc. This week, we'd love to have you share some of your favorite Utah books. Here are some ideas to get your started:
- Round up your favorite Utah books of all time
- Spotlight a book that takes place in Utah
- Give us a look at a Utah publisher
- Use "Follow Friday" (#ff) on Twitter to highlight a Utah book or two
